Protest At Zookeeper Movie Premier

Zookeeper Premier

So sad.

Last night animal rights groups came to protest Kevin James' Zookeeper in honor of a giraffe who died on during production.

Tweet, the giraffe on the set who had also been forced to perform in Ace Ventura and a slew of Toys "R" Us commercials.

While giraffes in the wild can live into their mid 20s, Tweet was only 18 years old.

According to a whistleblower who contacted PETA, Tweet's premature death may have resulted from his eating pieces of the blue tarp that covered his enclosure. The whistleblower alleges that Tweet's owner and trainers were notified that the giraffe had been eating the tarp but that they did nothing about it.

RIP Tweet.
