As a Generation Z child who knows today's pop culture (not completely though) many stars, particularly rappers all engage in smoking and all that, though doing that to a chimpanzee is not funny at all. Also, I wouldn't really be surprised if his rapper friends found it funny. Thank God he is kinda low key, otherwise so tabloid outlets would pound on him with news stories.
    I agree itís not good to do to a chimpanzee but I donít think the media would say anything about it. There are many popular artists who have proven records of violence and other terrible things, but yet remain highly popular. This would be nothing compared to some of the things other have done. But I also agree that it seems to be a bit generational as people in his friend group seemed to find it funny.

    One person commented at first glance it seemed funny until it wasn't.

    Another said Lucky Monkey.

    All I know is I am personally shocked and upset by what I inadvertently stumbled upon and viewed on someone's public social media account.

    For me, this isn't about Deacon Frey or his friends. It's about the animal in the video and his/her rights.

    No need to apologize. I can understand being upset by seeing that. It was definitely not appropriate to post

    I beg to disagree with the generational part. What I am trying to say is that in this generation, if he was as famous as Glenn Frey (like as in the "in thing") he would have been hounded by the media. These days, many famous people, particularly more main stream, lose their gigs over drugs, etc, something extremely common back then. And maybe it's just that they're just like what Deacon is.

    And also, while they remain popular, they remain popular, nearly every time, for the wrong reasons. They then redeem themselves when they get rid of the aforementioned bad habit.
    The chemistry... nuff said

    I just disagree I guess. There are a few artists who have done some really horrible things that do not compare to posting an inappropriate video but I donít see the point of continuing this discussion

    An interesting song choice. Deacon obviously has listened to more than what he has learned for the concerts. I agree that picking a song of his dad would have been a bit obvious. If PMAIAR really IS his favorite song, then that's what his answer to the question should be. You can't help what moves you.
