- I watched #Rampage
last week on a plane and this heartbreaking scene left me feeling really emotional as this may just be a movie but what is being shown here happens in real life.
kill entire #Gorilla
families for their body parts to sell on the black market while the babies look on helpless, terrified and traumatised. Those babies are often killed too or for certain species illegally smuggled and sold as #ExoticPets
That’s why it’s not cute to see people with pet #Chimps
on Instagram for example as what you don’t see is the part where poachers butchered their entire family in #Africa
so that the babies could be smuggled to the Middle East or the US to become someone’s #Pet
I know this is a movie but I would expect someone who is learning about this subject matter to empathise with the plight of #Animals
and that is why my previous post of @TheRock
asserting his dominance over an #Alligator
in a display of #ToxicMasculinity
is surprising to me as well as his recent pics with captive sea lions forced to perform in shows and captive beluga whales abducted from the wild and forced to live in tiny pools.
Given these scenes, I guess I just expected better from him as he’s making a habit of posting animal exploitation pics online but the characters he plays on screen are the opposite. @TheRock
- I really hope you will take the time to understand why your recent antics have upset so many people so that you can use your platform for good moving forward as the #AnimalRights
movement could really use your voice ✌️ .
