But Wasn't It For The Gorilla?

What is there to say after this headline, Gorilla Caretakers Sued Over Breast-Baring Request. Apparently two female employees of the Gorilla Foundation were required to "indulge Koko's nipple fetish" by baring their breasts on occasion. Terminated after they complained about sanitary conditions, they have now brought suit against the Foundation and Francine "Penny" Patterson, the longtime trainer of Koko, a gorilla with a vocabulary of more than 1,000 signs. Koko, at least at this juncture, has not been sued.
