Michael Caine Faces Backlash After Suggesting Birds Can’t Get Pregnant
British actor Michael Caine is facing backlash after he went on a controversial tirade, accusing Animal Planet of hiding the truth about “how certain animals copulate.” Sir Caine, 86, took to Twitter, demanding we the people are “told the truth about birds and what they really are.”
“Shave a bird and it’s just a beak and some eyes. No dick, no pussy. How’s that getting pregnant?” he wrote.
He went on to say that fish, on the other hand are “constantly fuckin’ at it, that’s why the ocean is so salty. They’ve even got them massive cum whales that can probably get anything near them preggers.”
His focus quickly returned to birds, however, and the actor verbally attacked anyone who dared question his theory. One Twitter user informed Caine that birds, in fact, lay eggs, but he blasted back that eggs are a breakfast food for people who can’t afford Coco Pops (adding in a separate tweet that he can afford Coco Pops and has two open boxes currently in his pantry).
Sources close to the star say that Caine’s obsession runs much deeper than the occasional outburst on social media, and that he even has a large aviary at his house where he closely monitors the sexual activities of over a hundred finches. Our source went on to say that the actor distributes hand-drawn bird pornography amongst the finches and is adamant that he’s not seen “a single bird boner” in his three years of observing them.
This isn’t the first time the Oscar winner has let loose on social media with his controversial takes. Back in January of this year, he exchanged words with Neil deGrasse Tyson, insisting that the moon was nowhere near the size NASA says it is. “It can be no bigger than a pound coin,” he said. When Tyson offered to talk about the subject in more detail over the phone, Caine tweeted a crudely Photoshopped image of Neil eating dogshit with a spoon and captioned it, “Suck my big hairy moon balls, Neil.”
Caine then went live on Instagram, drank a can of paint, and blacked out in front of his 33 viewers.
