While many of you were out at the polls voting, Iggy Azalea and her boo French Montana were facing some serious allegations after posing with an elephant in the French’s backyard.
In celebration of the rapper’s 32nd birthday earlier this week, the larger than life Morocco native opted out of a simple night at home and a birthday cake. Instead, he was surprised with a big elephant draped in jewelry.
“I love animals more than people,” French wrote on Instagram. “Happy bday to me positive vibes at the Casa.” He later wrote, “Turn your life to a life time vacation
Grinded all day so I can ball tomorrow bday officially here all praise due to the most high.”
In the images, the rapper, clad in a red robe, can be seen dancing alongside the large mammal with a bright smile smeared across his face. Iggy also shared a snapshot of herself alongside the elephant while wearing a pink two-piece ensemble.
French and the Australian rapper were thoroughly enjoying themselves; however, their fans weren’t exactly pleased with the photos. A group of folks on social media accused the couple of animal cruelty — quite the allegation.
French, however, addressed the accusations in a seemingly curt tweet that read: “Shut yo a** up. That elephant was a surprise for my b-day in my yard when I walked out, and was from the zoo and people that take care of it.”
Allegations of animal cruelty comes six months after the dancing, twirling, talented mammals at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus performed their last and final show.
The move to retire the elephants from the famous show comes after years of protests by animal rights activists. “(It’s) nothing more than a breeding facility, where elephants are chained for approximately 16 hours a day or more in concrete-floored barns and still beaten with bullhooks,” PETA’s Arth said. “When they’re allowed outside, they’re confined to small, virtually barren paddocks.”
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
