Axl Rose has posted a bizarre series of messages on Twitter discussing the slaughter of Marius the giraffe in a Danish zoo.

The two-year-old animal was put down earlier this month at Copenhagen Zoo, despite thousands of people signing a petition to try and save his life. The zoo, who said they had to act to stop in-breeding among the giraffes, was killed by a bolt gun and then fed to lions in front of a group of watching children.

Guns N'Roses frontman Rose has now weighed in on the debate surrounding Marius's death. "Just enjoying the lion's share of some tasty baby Giraffica sliders! Mmmmm! What'll them crazy Danes think of next!", he quipped, before adding a longer message: "But seriously, let me get this straight... The Danes killed a 2yr old baby giraffe, chopped it up n' fed him to the lions (allegedly in front of kids) to avoid inbreeding rather than find a place for it. Maybe this is a big problem over there I don't know but I'm not getting how this deters siblings n' various other assorted Danish family members from fuckin' each other?! J/k :)"

He then later made another post referencing the incident, writing: "Lemme get a Giraffica, a homemade cherry Danish, some o' them pre-fried Pepper's... Oh! n' a liter of cola!"

Rose's public messages about the giraffe follow similarly attention-grabbing remarks he made earlier this month about the Red Hot Chili Peppers, when he speculated that they had used bizarre new technology to send electronic signals from their instruments in the absence of traditional wires or wireless transmitters at their Super Bowl performance.

Rose, who made his comments before Flea admitted the band's bass, drums and guitar were not plugged in during the half-time show, suggested that the bassist had employed a "newly invented breakthrough in microchip technology installed in his ass that picked up the frequencies of his bass and transmitted them to his amplifier".
