Don't grope the animals

UFC fighter apologizes for grabbing tiger by the testicles

Luke Rockhold apparently lives by one simple rule: Grab life by the stones. Or, rather, grab a tiger by his.

The UFC fighter on Tuesday posted a picture of himself grabbing a docile tiger by the testicles along with the caption, "Who's your daddy."

Naturally, the internet exploded over the image, with some commenters saying they hoped the animal would knock out the fighter, and others claiming the extemporaneous squeeze was borderline bestiality.

"For those of u who think it was disrespectful I'm sorry," Rockhold wrote in the caption of a follow-up video that showed him petting the same tiger, post-fondling. "Was so minor just joking around. I was way too scared and would never do anything harmful to any animal."
