Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose is weighing in on the controversial killing of a giraffe at a zoo in Denmark. 

The rocker sent out a series of apparently sarcastic tweets this week about "enjoying the lion's share of some tasty baby Giraffica sliders," adding "what'll them crazy Danes think of next." 

Officials at the Copenhagen Zoo said their duty to avoid inbreeding forced them to euthanize the healthy animal this past Sunday, dismember it in front of a zoo audience, and feed it to the lions. 

Rose said in another tweet that he didn't realize inbreeding was such a big problem over in Denmark, but he's not sure how the giraffe's death will help fix it.  It's unclear just how upset Axl is, however, since he finished his message by writing "just kidding" and adding a smiley face.
