Not everyone who ends up in Hollywood wants to be an actor. Not sure why you should boycott movies, TV shows, and companies that use animals? This new video should clear it up.

Chimpanzees and orangutans destined for use in television, film, and advertisements are torn away from their mothers as infants and subjected to harsh beatings in order to make them perform unnatural behaviors on cue. At the end of their “careers,” apes are usually dumped at shoddy roadside zoos and other substandard facilities, where they may spend the rest of their long lives in small, filthy cages—often without proper companionship.
