Joy Taylor recently sent a big message not only to NBA fans but to people around the world. The beautiful analyst has always voiced her voice about plenty of things, especially about the NBA and sports in general, and whenever she speaks, everybody listens.
In recent hours, she sent a different message on social media after she caught a viral video of a man getting grabbed by his leg and dragged to a cage by a monkey. Footage shows a man extending his arms to greet a monkey, but the animal instead pulled his t-shirt and attempted to take him close to its cage.
This person tried to get away from the animal, but the monkey was really strong and after getting away from the t-shirt, it decided to grab the man's leg. Even after another person came to help, the monkey wouldn't let the man go and even lifted the man from the ground.
Taylor reacted to this video, asking people to stop messing around with animals. They could have an unexpected reaction, even inside cages, that could hurt somebody.
"Y'all need to leave these animals alone fr," Taylor tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.
Fans reacted to that interaction, too, some joking about the situation, but others pointing out that things could have gone a lot worse for these people.
That is a risky thing to do, no matter how safe you think you are. We've seen bad news in the last few years regarding people in zoos, being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Hopefully, people think better about what they do in these situations and avoid living uncomfortable events.
