Kim Kardashian adopts chimpanzee after high profile mauling incident

Kim Kardashian and her family have made the incredibly stupid and careless decision to adopt a three year old chimpanzee. This is especially obnoxious in light of the high profile case last week of a pet chimpanzee needing to be put down by police in Connecticut after it seriously mauled a woman who was a friend of the owner. It will surely get her family plenty of attention for their reality show, though, and isn’t that more important than setting a bad example for other stupid people who might want to adopt a chimp?

As you guys know season three of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is close to airing and we have some crazy surprises.

One of them is…


Her name is Suzy, she is three years old, and she is a handful!

She steals our BlackBerrys and climbs up my mom’s bed.

Having a monkey is a lot of work. Suzy always has her diaper on and we are the ones who have to change it!

It’s just like having an infant but worse because Suzy runs around like a teenager! She always needs to be fed, drinks out of a bottle and she loves Capri Sun juices!

You have to check out the new season to get all of the details… but how cute is she!?

[From Kim Kardashian's Blog]

The comments on Kim’s site are overwhelmingly negative. People point out that a chimp is an ape, not a monkey, and that she has “no business raising” one especially if she can’t tell the difference between them. This sounds like a stunt to drum up interest in the family’s reality show, and it’s an irresponsible one to say the least.

I saw a segment on CNN about the issue of chimpanzee adoption by humans. They interviewed the head of Save The Chimps which is “the largest sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees in the world.” Jen Feuerstein said that she doesn’t allow humans much contact with the chimps in her care and strives to keep their environment close to the wild. She warned against adoption of chimps. “There’s no question that a baby chimp is adorable… but when grown, they are seven times stronger than an adult human and capable of causing some very serious harm.”

CNN also spoke to the head of the Humane Society, Wayne Pacelle, who said “these animals are ticking time bombs.” While Pacelle wasn’t directly addressing the asinine Kardashians, he had some harsh words for people who adopt chimpanzees:

“If the owners are stupid enough to allow this animal into their home, they shouldn’t be allowed to jeopardize the rest of the community.”

Except in Kim’s case she’s not just jeopardizing her community, she’s setting a terrible example to all the fans who watch her show. As hard as it is to believe, people emulate her and this isn’t just a pair of $700 shoes. Chimps are wild animals, not pets, and not only is it unsafe to have them around your family it’s also unfair to the animal. What an irresponsible, thoughtless stunt that is. That entire family is full of fame-hungry dimwits.

    I… am… gobsmacked!

    But not as smacked in the gob as these damn fools will be by that chimp. Just when you think that celebutards couldn’t be any dumber, they confound all reason.

  2. Megan says:

    Unbelievable. I actually thought Kim was a cool girl until this, seemed a bit ditzy but generally a nice person. But a chimp?? I mean, come on. Isn’t there a local zoo that would have it? It’s an animal, not a toy!

  3. HEB says:

    I’m glad you added that last paragraph about celebrity emulation, hey it wasn’t too long ago you posted something about the alarming number of abandoned chihuahuas out there thanks to Paris Hilton…obviously this would be even worse! A chihuahua can’t bite your hands off!

  4. boomchakaboom says:

    The part where it rips their faces off will be a ratings boNANza.

    Sorry, didn’t really want to go there, but couldn’t resist. Seriously, this is an unbelievably stupid and irresponsible thing for them to do. I already was repulsed by the entire K-clan and this just put a final nail in it. So to speak.

  5. guest says:

    that is not only ridic but really really ignorant.

  6. Foolio says:

    This flies in the face of decency, considering what happened to that poor woman. Maybe they should have seen the police photos of her injuries before doing something so irresponsible.

  7. Wow says:

    Well if there had to be another family to do it, I’m glad its The Karda$hian$.

  8. Maritza says:

    I can’t stand their show, it is so phony just like them! They are just taking advantage of the news of that poor woman just to see if people mention them again.
    That chimpanzee will only be there until they film and then he’ll be back to the zoo.

  9. eggy weggs says:

    That chimp is adorable and surely deserves a shot at a decent life; this is NOT it. I hope she gets strong enough and rips all of their arms off and beats them over their stupid heads. This is worse treatment than “Project X.” I hope Jane Goodall storms in a shoots tranq darts at these horrible people and takes Suzy away.

  10. smith says:

    Which one is the ape??

  11. OXA says:

    Maybe it will rip Kims’s ass off.

  12. Tess says:

    I continue to be shocked by Bruce Jenner and his association with this tacky bunch of fame-chasers.

    But, it shouldn’t be shocking because in the end, character is all. And birds of a feather flock together.

  13. Ernestine says:

    I hope it flings its feces at her nightly — directly into her slackjawed, whorish mouth. Stupid bitch.

    Just when I assume that I can’t possibly hate this pointless c**t any more than I already do…

  14. the original kate says:

    that is so irresponsible. wild animals are not meant to be pets, regardless of how “tame” they seem.

  15. Baholicious says:

    Chimpanzees are apes, not monkeys. Sorry, this is a pet peeve of mine (no pun intended).

  16. Yeah, Screw 'Em says:

    I love how the only one that seems to be smiling is their mom. She probably thinks she found her long lost daughter.

  17. NotBlonde says:

    Chimps are EXTREMELY dangerous animals. People think that the trained ones they see on tv are how they truly are and um…no. A trained chimp is like a trained bear. Real bear: rip your face off. Real chimp: rip your arm out of the socket and kill you.

    I do not understand why people think they are “cute” animals.

  18. Me says:

    How can 3 sisters be so hot!!! Even Khloe is looking better now that she is slimming down a bit.

  19. Ashley says:

    This truly is sad. After the season is ove then they will give the chimp up because they are hard to care for and they no longer need the publicity. This is particularly sad for the chimp because like the rest of the great apes (humans including) they thrive on and need social interaction. After she gets attatched to this stupid family, she won’t be able to understand why she’s being given away. Then it will be particularly hard to attatch to other chimps because there is a strict social order among them that will be hard for her to become a part of.
    I really hope E! gets sued in some way for this and quits glamorizing idiots (yes, I know that’s just a pipe dream!)

  20. yasmin says:

    Err… Paris Hilton used to have a chimp too, she tried to take it shopping and it ended up scratching her.

    To anyone who thinks that Kim is “nice” and “smart”… she is more vapid and ditzy than Paris… I know right? Who thought that would even be possible.

    Kim is a desperate, vain, attention-wh*re.

  21. yasmin says:

    Oh & “ME” 3 sisters can be so “hot” (if that’s what you’re into) because of plastic surgery. Too bad Kourtney doesn’t get some on that face.

  22. WOW! says:

    @ Ashley

    Great comment and very insightful.

    It amazes me that so many people either don’t care or don’t understand that an animal, especially a chimp, is a conscious , cognitive being with the capacity to experience emotions such as abandonment and usually “act out” those “feelings” aggressively.

  23. Feebee says:

    I don’t believe for a minute this dumbass bunch of broads are looking after this chimp 24/7. It’ll be there when the cameras are rolling and then it’ll be carted off somewhere.

    What are the legislators doing about this? Time to say this crap is illegal unless you provide a santuary-like environment and have some training or experience with wild animals. And no sleeping or sharing baths with them, I don’t care how much social interaction they need.

  24. ChristinaX says:

    I always found this woman dumb in the head, and why other women hailed her as some kind of heroine in the first place boggles my mind.

    Maybe this will finally put the “But Kim is so real!” remarks to rest.

    @ Me: Did you read the f*cking article at all, or did you ignore it entirely just to announce that you find them hot? Because that was completely pointless…AND second of all: You don’t think they know that?

    The only reason anyone gave a rat’s about Kim Kardashian in the first place is because of her appearance ANYWAY.

  25. BluePlanet says:

    How absolutely, outlandishly, over the top ignorant and downright stupid can you get? This is your answer.

  26. faye says:

    god i hope it rips one of their faces off.

  27. Debbie says:

    Unbelieveable irresponsible and ignorant. by the way that grin on that infant chimp is what is called a ‘fear grin’ chimps don’t show their upper teeth when they ‘smile’ also baby chimps spend the first 10 years with their mother. Amazing I know these things but this family didn’t take the time to get educated.

  28. Jag says:

    So they steal a baby chimp from its mother in order to secure ratings? They have no souls… What will the chimp go through when they finally discard it? Do they even know that a chimp can live to be 60 years old?

    I agree that they should see the very graphic photos of that poor woman who had her eyes ripped out of her head, along with the rest of her face being torn off. They should have to visit her in the hospital and help pay her medical bills… She’ll never see again, and may be a candidate for a face transplant, due to the damage.

    They are the worst kinds of idiots, just like Paris Hilton.
