Ke$ha Was Secretly Detained After Bringing Illegal Ivory Into U.S.

Ke$ha was busted by Homeland Security trying to bring illegal ivory back into the country!

Ke$ha you bad girl! What have you done??

The animal-friendly pop star should be ashamed of herself!

Apparently, back in 2012, Ke$ha was secretly detained by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for bring illegal ivory into the country!

She apparently had a $500 ivory "snuff box" in her possession. What the heck is a snuff box?? That sounds terrifying!!!

This is kinda a huuuuuge deal because the pop star, currently in rehab, was an American Humane Society Global Ambassador!

Michelle Cho, the Vice President of The Humane Society of the United States, said:

"Ke$ha apparently bought a piece of jewelry at a thrift shop and was unaware it was ivory. It is not uncommon for even the most dedicated animal lover to mistakenly buy ivory when they think it’s another material. Ke$ha, like other animal advocates, assures us she would never knowingly contribute to such a gruesome industry."

We really really reallllllly hope that's true!

We just can't believe that Ke$ha would've actually bought real illegal ivory if she had known.

She knows the suffering an elephant goes through when they are senselessly killed for their tusks.

Let's hope her stint in rehab goes well and that she feels awful about the whole ivory incident so that it never happens again.

    You actually prick. You say she should be ashamed of herself yet in the next sentence you put a quote saying it was an accident? You are such a bully, how would you feel if your son was told he should be ashamed of his self every time he accidentally makes a mistake during his life? Picking an easy target because she is in rehab, you need to go to rehab to address the obvious issues you have as a bully. She is in rehab because she was bullied into being thin and you do exactly the same thing. No wonder everyone hates you.

    The best way to save the african elephant from extinction is to import them into the united states and release them into american communities. Nobody would kill them then. Just kidding. The reason africans kill them is because 1) THEY DONT WANT THEM WALKING THROUGHT THEIR COMMUNITIES 2) IVORY SELLS and can save their children from a life without education. Thats two birds one stone. The elephant is doomed, but, she should obey the law anyways.

    Don't know much about ivory other than it is illegal, but would love to buy some amber. My late grandma had the most beautiful two strand necklace of amber beads and I am sorry I did not take one strand. My grandpa had a lot of friends around the harbor, think he got them from one of them.
