This Morning viewers BAFFLED as photographer explains how a MONKEY is suing him

After trying to get a picture of a rare species of macaques, David Slater explained how he had befriended the monkeys, but they were still wary about his presence with a camera. 

He continued: “I thought that if I put the camera on a tripod with a shutter button, they would start playing with it and sure enough they did, and that was the result.” 

The picture became famous around the world as the first ever “monkey selfie” but the fact that the macaque, called Naruto, took the photo, has caused a wealth of problems for David. 

“PETA decided the monkey has copyright and the right to sell the image,” the photographer revealed. 

He added: “The monkey now has me in court for copyright infringement for my own photo.”

As David told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford about his struggles throughout, This Morning viewers couldn’t help but laugh at the absurdity of the case. 

One posted on Twitter: “@peta What on earth? Sued by a monkey? Grow up #ThisMorning.”

Another added: “The monkey took him to court bloody hell that’s hysterical #ThisMorning.”

A third joked: “#ThisMorning if monkey can sue man for a pic then I’m suing monkeys in Gibraltar for stealing my sandwich and pulling down my trousers.”

A fourth tweeted: “I’ve heard it all now. Can’t take a pic of a monkey ffs #ThisMorning.”

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV from 10.30am.
