Just hours after Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie left Namibia with their newborn daughter and their two older children, they have announced that they will soon visit Knoxville and continue their humanitarian efforts.
“While we celebrate the joy of the birth of our daughter, we recognize that right here in the United States, babies are born every year without the comforts we can afford them,” announced Jolie and Brad Pitt. “These children can be helped, but only if governments around the world make it a priority. In Knoxville, some parents can’t afford 2-month retreats to third-world countries, so their children never learn the hardships faced in other parts of the world. We want to work with the local governments in cities such as Knoxville to create inner-city third world country simulations that will show these hardships. By allowing the poor to procreate and live in these simulated areas, the more affluent will have the opportunity too see first-hand just what it can be like.”
Representatives from Knox County Government have stated that the planned location for the project is Chilhowee Park. This location allows the Knoxville Zoo to manage the ‘third world country’ as a regular exhibit. Ensuring proper treatment of the residents, and a revenue-generating source for the Zoo.
The exact date of the Pitt-Jolie visit to Knoxville has not been announced, but is expected in the coming weeks. Pitt and Jolie were first linked romantically after appearing in the 2005 movie “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”
