YouTuber films monkey 'smoking weed' and says the 'n-word' in video

Over the last few years, YouTube prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy has been arrested on numerous occasions.

From bomb scares to scaling the Hollywood sign and waving a gigantic banner, there seems to be little the World Cup streaker won't do for attention.

Zdorovetskiy has once again landed himself in hot water by posting a video of himself and his friends watching a monkey smoke what appears to be weed from a bong - seriously.

In the series of short clips, originally uploaded to his Instagram page, he laughs at the animal before stroking its head and asking: "You high, bro?"

He then films the monkey eating and asks: "You got the munchies?"

Then Zdorovetskiy uses a racial slur without hesitation, asking:

Hey, my n****, you good?

Unsurprisingly, people are criticising the YouTube star and accusing him of animal abuse.

PETA responded to outraged cries on Twitter and said their Cruelty Investigations Department is aware of the video:

But few people have called out Zdorovetskiy for his use of the 'n-word', a slur which fellow YouTuber PewDiePie was blasted for using last year.

Ultimately, it's likely this will be seen as nothing more than another controversy driven by an already divisive prankster, but what do you think?
