Sometimes, I wish Axl Rose would be more active on his social networks, because I care what the dude’s gotta say. But then when he goes and uses them, he just disappoints. So, there are some times when I wish the dude would become even more reclusive.
For reasons undetermined, the Guns N’ Roses frontman decided he’d weigh in on a controversy I didn’t even realize was going on.
So thanks Axl.
The controversy involves the Copenhagen Zoo, which shot and killed a healthy 2-year-old giraffe named Marius over the weekend and fed its remains to lions.
The culling, they offered, would help prevent inbreeding at the zoo.
Says Axl via Twitter:
“Just enjoying the lion’s share of some tasty baby Giraffica sliders! Mmmmm! What’ll them crazy Danes think of next!”
And that was Axl Rose, arbiter of tasteless jokes.
He followed that zinger up with:
“But seriously, let me get this straight… The Danes killed a 2-year old baby giraffe, chopped it up n’ fed him to the lions (allegedly in front of kids) to avoid inbreeding rather than find a place for it. Maybe this is a big problem over there, I don’t know, but I’m not getting how this deters siblings n’ various other assorted Danish family members from fuckin’ each other?!”
See what I mean? I get what he’s saying, and I wanna know what Axl thinks. It’s just the way he expresses n’ all.
