The With You singer presented his three year old daughter Royalty with a baby monkey. 

He shared a video of the moment his child receives the marmoset, who was wrapped in a blanket and wearing a nappy. 

“Is that your baby? He’s going to be bigger than you! Look, you have the same sized head,” Chris said.

But some of his 41 million followers weren’t impressed with the little girls’s new pet. 

“Shame on you. The baby monkey belongs to his mom,” one wrote. 

Another added: “They poor baby monkey belongs with his/her mother!!!! Get her a doll not a freaking monkey! Wtf.”

A third fan wrote: “Cruel this monkey belongs in the wild, stop exploiting animals just because u have money!”

“This is just sad. why would she need a monkey? you know what the monkey REALLY needs? it’s mother. It’s a baby. Sad @chrisbrownofficial. Have some respect for wild life,” a fourth fan chimed in. 

According to the RSPCA, although owning a marmoset isn’t illegal they don’t make a good pet.

Their website states: “They are wild animals that have very specific welfare needs. 

“It is impossible to provide an environment as complex and rich as the wild for a marmoset kept as a pet. They are tropical animals who require a warm climate.”

It also states that any primate can become aggressive as they mature and can attack their owners.
