Couldn't just let that man live

Chris Brown made the mistake of posting a photo of his daughter playing with a Capuchin monkey… and now a bunch of social media narcs have Breezy facing 6 months in jail.

Brown posted a photo of his daughter Royalty playing with the monkey named Fiji, and he made it clear that Fiji was her new pet. The internet lost it, saying that the monkey was a danger to Brown’s daughter. A few people reported Brown to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, who realized that Brown didn’t have the proper permits to own the monkey.

The authorities got a warrant, but Brown turned the monkey over before they could come knocking. Still, the singer could be charged with “having a restricted species without a permit.” The case has been turned over to the Los Angeles City Attorney.

Brown’s lawyer Mark Geragos let TMZ know that he thought the charges were ridiculous.

“As I leave my office in Downtown L.A. and walk past people sleeping on the street on my way to defend people charged by the City Attorney with selling medical marijuana … now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity,” he said.
