Animal Rights groups aren’t too happy with Cee Lo Green’s decision to bring a cockatoo to work. The Voice star has always pushed boundaries, but this time he might be going too far.
According to Born Free, an animal rights group, Moluccan cockatoos are not only an endangered species, but make for horrible pets.
“Moluccan cockatoos are beautiful, intelligent animals but they are very challenging to care for especially in the long term, and are prone to considerable welfare problems,” a rep for the organization told TMZ.
This isn’t the first critter Cee Lo has brought onto the show. He used to bring his cat Purrfect, a white feline that rested on his lap. The singer has decided to switch things up for the new season and have Lady the cockatoo come onto the show.
Cee Lo told People that Lady’s name says it all.
“She’s my little lady with a big opinion. Sometimes whispers inappropriateness in my ear, but always ladylike.”
What do you think? Should the ‘Forget You’ singer be allowed to bring a cockatoo onto the set?
