Say the words “Justin Bieber” and “monkey” in the same sentence and it’s sure to cause some hairs to stand on end, extreme eye rolling, and maybe an instantaneous stress headache. Rightfully so: Bieber has made some terrible choices when it comes to monkeys (and other animals, too, for that matter). Maybe this is wishful thinking, but perhaps something is sinking in under the Bieber bouffant, as he recently voiced some support when he encountered an Air France protest.

According to PETA, when the Biebs ran into the Air France protest at Los Angeles International airport, he stopped to chat with the protesters. When he learned that Air France was being paid to ship primates on their planes to laboratories (where the primates would face an unspeakable fate), Bieber summed up his thoughts eloquently.

“Air France sucks!” he declared. Protesters reported that the failed animal caregiver took some more information with him, as well as a “Boycott Air France” T-shirt.

No, Bieber’s verbal reaction to the issue does not somehow cancel out the poor decisions he’s made thus far, but knowledge is power and hopefully that encounter will get some gears turning the right way inside the Bieber Noggin.
