December 17, 2003 -- ANIMAL activists were up in arms after MTV's season opener of "MTV
Cribs" Monday night. The show featured Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion. At one point the
cameras wander into the room of Playmate/Hef galpal Tiffany, who at all times clutches a
2-week-old macaque named Pinky. The tiny monkey, wearing a diaper and looking miserable,
sleeps in a crib next to Tiffany's bed and is subjected to her loud attempts at
deejaying. Tiffany jokes that Pinky is the baby that Hefner promised her two years ago.
Hef shoots back, "But I never knew he'd be so small and hairy." At one point the creature
is force-fed a grape - to the horror of activists. "People who love animals often don't
realize that unscrupulous dealers snatch these adorable baby monkeys away from their own
loving mothers, a heart-wrenching ordeal, and that they will grow up neurotic and
lonely," PETA spokesman Michael McGraw said.
