    The Takasakiyama Natural Zoological Garden named this newborn monkey Charlotte after Britain's new royal baby.
    A Japanese zoo has apologized for messing up royally when it named its new baby monkey Charlotte after Britain's little princess.

    The Takasakiyama Natural Zoological Garden received massive backlash from Japanese critics, saying the name disrespected the royal family, after the Wednesday arrival of its first monkey born this year.

    The female macaque shares the same regal name as Kate Middleton and Prince William’s newborn daughter, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, who is the fourth in line to the British throne.

    "We deeply apologize for causing trouble to many people over the naming of the first baby (monkey)," the zoo said in a statement on its website. "We take these opinions seriously."

    The name Charlotte won in a public voting contest the southwestern Japan zoo held to help name the monkey, receiving 59 out of 853 votes, according to Kyodo News.

    It beat out Elsa, a princess in Disney's popular film "Frozen," and Kei — after Japanese tennis player Kei Nishikori, the local news outlet said.

    Zoo officials are now considering changing the primate's name.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge named their baby on Monday after Queen Elizabeth II, the baby's 89-year-old great-grandmother, and the late Princess Diana, William's mother.

    I am offended that William and Kate named their baby after the monkey.

    Have they apologized for pearl harbor, or eating our POWs, or raping thousands of Chinese women????

    Probably too busy having Hiroshima memorials.

    The people who bombed pearl harbor are all dead.
    Why would they apologize for something their ancestors did over 70years ago?
    They had no part in it.

    Stupid finking "Royalty" :pie:

    Guess what, America went to war with them and won just so no American should ever bow or cower to their bullshit again. :flag:


    Next, they'll make Robert Smith apologize for naming a song from the 80's after her too.

    A great true story on that is in a passage from one of Harry Truman's biographies. It was either the 20th or 25th anniversary of the A-Bomb drop on Hiroshima. A big commemoration was planned. The Japanese government asked our State Department to ask Harry to attend. Our State Department called President Truman and told him that the Japanese government wanted him to attend the Hiroshima ceremony. Harry thought for a minute and said "OK. I'll go.....but don't expect me to kiss their asses."
