‘Gorilla breast fetish’ women sue
Two women sacked from their jobs caring for a gorilla in the US have sued their ex-employer for allegedly ordering them to show the animal their breasts. Nancy Alperin and Kendra Keller claim they were told to show their nipples to the gorilla, Koko, as a way of bonding.
Their lawsuit said: “Through sign language, as interpreted by Patterson, Koko ‘demanded’ plaintiffs remove their clothing and show Koko their breasts.”
It went on: “On one such occasion, Patterson said, ‘Koko, you see my nipples all the time. You are probably bored with my nipples. You need to see new nipples. I will turn my back so Kendra can show you her nipples’.”
