Late Night Cruelty with Jimmy Fallon

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is my favourite TV talk show. I always jump on Youtube to watch recent episodes and have a good laugh. However, recently I came across an episode (video below) featuring a segment that made me terribly uneasy –Jeff Musial the ‘animal expert’.

Jeff Musial is a regular guest on Jimmy’s show and brings live animals into the studio to ‘scare’ Jimmy. Sadly, Mr Musial is more interested in a cheap laugh from the audience than taking care of the animals he treats as props. He handles the distressed animals roughly while the audience laughs and cheers.

Animals that have been forced to participate in this sickening segment include fennec foxes, bear cubs, water buffalo and cougars. But by far the worst thing Mr Musial has done was to bring an Asian elephant named Roxy into the studio. A television studio is no place for a full-grown elephant!

Animals were not put on Earth to be humiliated and frightened in the name of entertainment. If we stop watching TV shows when an animal is being exploited – then maybe the Jimmy Fallons of this world will put an end to the cruelty.

Animals in entertainment? EW!

  1. I’m shocked to see that the cruel act of keeping wild animals locked up and then broadcast on the television is still in practice. Hopefully, with awareness, this will stop in the near future. Great post.

  2. It actually makes me so sad to think that high profile celebrities are more concerned with making a few dollars with cheap laughs than caring for helpless animals in the care of ‘animal experts’. I would never have know this, and it has made me so angry. Animals were not put on this earth for laughs. They are living breathing organisms just like us and deserve respect.

  3. Being a fan of jimmy Fallon and Late night I’m shocked to hear that he endorses the mistreatment of animals by allowing this man to continue to be on his show. Definitely heading to sign that petition after reading this informative blog!
