Justin Bieber

Monkey Detained

by German Officials

0330-justin-bieberAll that monkeying around has finally caught up with Justin Bieber (literally) after officials in Germany confiscated his monkey because Biebs didn't have the proper paperwork.

Bieber arrived at the Munich airport on Thursday and was confronted about the monkey when he went through customs. Since Bieber didn't have the proper documentation for the monkey (and you know how Germans about having your papers in order) they took the monkey into quarantine. 

It appears the monkey was a recent gift from record producer Mally Mall, who tweeted the above photo earlier in the week with a caption, "OG MALLY FIRST PIC WITH HIS POPS @JUSTINBIEBER."

Bieber's track record with pets isn't so great -- he gave away his hamster to a random fan last December and the little guy passed away earlier this month.

Giving a monkey as a gift?? Really? Not only is Bieber irresponsible, but this doesn't say much for the people he hangs around with either. Monkeys are NOT pets.

The rules have been the same since before this creep was even born. Don't insinuate a Nazi joke b/c Germany stood up to the prick and reminded him rules apply to everyone. His schedule and his display of erratic, explosive behavior, as of late, are why it's a bad idea. Animals aren't accessories. I hope he gets bit and feces thrown on him.

His hat says "Quiet Life" arranged in a cross. His life is everything but quiet. His career was built on him being a total public commodity. Quiet Life does not make him a millionaire. Creating a delusion and illusion for little girls makes him a millionaire. Mommy's special baby has become immersed in the delusion, no longer able to have a real Quiet Life.

The boy can't take care of a hamster. Take ALL of his animals away from him.
