Luke Bryan Gave His Wife 2 Baby Kangaroos for Christmas and People Are Upset

By

Luke Bryan is under fire.

The 41-year-old country star gave his wife, Caroline, two adorable baby kangaroos for Christmas, but has now been called out on social media for his decision.

"2 Live Roo and Roo Tang Clan are living their best life. 🔥🔥🔥Seriously...real names are Margo and Todd. They are adjusting perfectly are beyond sweet and precious. #brettsbarn #christmasvacation #margoandtodd," wrote Caroline on her Instagram post, which the "Kick the Dust Up" crooner reposted.

Meanwhile, PETA released a statement on Friday calling out the singer for gifting the exotic animals.

"Baby kangaroos belong in their mothers’ pouches, not in gift bags. These joeys have complex needs, including specialized diets and room to roam -- they are not toys and will only become more difficult to care for as they grow older," the statement reads. "PETA is calling for an investigation into where these kangaroos came from and stands ready to help Luke Bryan right this wrong and move these vulnerable marsupials to a reputable sanctuary."

People on social media are also expressing their opinions on the kangaroos, with many disappointed in Luke's decision and others humoring him.

"I hope you have on employ a professional zookeeper that at least knows what they are doing," a fan wrote on Luke's post. "What you are doing is promoting cruelty to animals!"

"Google 'exotic pet trade cruelty' please and do the right thing, give these animals up to a sanctuary," another Instagram follower commented.

Luke had previously shared on Instagram that the kangaroos were the latest addition to their Brett's Barn, a farm he and his wife created after their niece, Sadie Brett, died in early 2017. The barn, which houses all sorts of rescue animals, is also a foundation that raises awareness for congenital heart disease and Down Syndrome. Luke works with local charities to bring kids out to see the animals at the barn.

Dear Brett....when your sweet Mama told me of the challenges you might face in life, I was floored when her first words were "I can't handle the thought of someone making fun of her." She never said, "Why me? Why us?" Nothing. Her words were all about you. Protecting you. Loving you with a love that only a Mother knows. Sweet Angel, you changed so many stubborn hearts that most thought were unbreakable. The first time we saw your smile was beyond amazing. You instantly became one of the greatest blessings to the the entire Boyer/Wells/Bryan family. So....to get to my point of the picture....when you were about a month old, I promised you a white pony! I found you one.....along with some other adorable mini animals! Your mom and I hijacked one of your Uncle Luke's barns and started having a little fun with it (thank you sweetie @lukebryan)! We still have a lot of work to do, but it's coming together! "Brett's Barn" is officially in the works. This is all for you Queen Bee. We love you to the moon and back. 👑🐝 #brightforbrett #brettsbarn
