Big Bang star Kaley Cuoco is one of the most recent celebs to speak out about the gorilla shooting that took place at the Cincinnati zoo. In an unfortunate turn of events, a young boy got into the gorilla enclosure at the zoo on Saturday and in rescuing him, Harambe the gorilla was shot and killed.
Kaley took to her Instagram account to share her opinions on the event.
“RIP #harambe Im sure I will get tons of backlash (per usual) I mean let’s be honest, I wear the wrong sweatpants and the entire world has something to say about it, but once again, another senseless horrendous animal being killed over people not using their brains. If you watch the footage, you see this gorgeous animal holding that child’s hand. Do with that, what you will. As sad as this makes me, a part of me is happy for that amazing creature doesn’t have to live in captivity another day. Bring on the hate!!!!”
There has been quite a bit of controversy around the incident, with opinions divided on who is at fault in the matter. Many people think the parents of the child should have kept a better eye on him to prevent his getting into the enclosure in the first place, while others say it could have happened to anyone and the child’s safety was of main concern. Some are saying that a tranquilizer gun should have been used instead, but speed was of the essence in this case so a lethal shot was fired.
What do you think about this controversy?
