I don’t like this as a political statement. I don’t think it is any easier for the rich to “just stop being rich” than for me to stop being white.

However, this was exactly what I thought when I looked at the image. The fat chimp- so unsettling and clearly unnatural- screams unhealth through over consumption. The food that he has been harming himself with should have gone to the starving chimps instead and then they would all be healthy.

It did strike me as a statement about capitalism.
