The Justin Bieber monkey saga continues. It looks like the German animal shelter where the singer’s monkey is being held wants Bieber to give his monkey up for adoption.
To recap, last week we reported Bieber took his capuchin monkey, Mally, to Germany while on tour. Well, he didn’t have the proper paperwork and the country quarantined Mally. Bieber is currently on tour, which isn’t over until the end of April. Will he go back for his monkey?
According to The Inquisitor, a new campaign has formed requesting Bieber to please do the right thing and give Mally to a sanctuary. Even the animal shelter where Mally is staying wants Bieber to do what’s best for his 15-week-old baby primate.
Originally, Bieber and his team had four weeks to rescue Mally, but that has been extended to an indefinite period of time. Reportedly, the four week time frame only applies if the person in question does not make contact.
“His management team had been in touch and indicated that they want the monkey back which means they now have as much time as they need to get the paperwork ready,” Karl Heinz Joachim, director of the German animal shelter where Mally’s quarantined, explained.
In addition to Joachim, several other animal organizations are speaking out against Bieber’s irresponsible actions and asking the singer to please let Mally be free for adoption.
However, some feel quite the opposite. For example, Jimmy Kimmel is hopping on the “save Justin Bieber’s monkey” bandwagon, as he believes the monkey should be brought home to his owner.
Recently, a bit aired on Kimmel’s late night talk show, where the comedian says if Germany doesn’t return Mally to Beiber by midnight tonight, then he will kill David Hasselhoff. Singer Kid Rock also joined Kimmel’s farce of a campaign.
Kimmel noted Germany is taking something we love, so we’ll take something they love aka The Hoff.
Jokes aside, this is a serious situation and Bieber needs to step up and take control of a situation he started.
“A monkey and especially a baby monkey does not belong on a world tour as a fashion accessory for a pop star,” Joachim said. “It is madness. In fact it was madness to have given an animal like this as a pet in the first place. But sadly stupid things rarely go punished.
Hopefully, Bieber will stop his monkeying around and do what’s right for Mally.
