Movie-star monkey slaps news anchor on live TV (Video)

A Houston news anchor learned the hard way that you shouldn't taunt a monkey.

A recent ABC newscast featured the tiny monkey that starred in 'Dr. Dolittle' and a fun game of keep-away.

But it seems that not everyone knows that you should only play nice with monkeys.

Well the news anchor had a big surprise when the monkey got fed up with her game and smacked her right on the forehead.

She laughed it off, though and didn't appear to be hurt.

"I'm sorry! I didn't mean to tease you," the anchor said.

The impatient monkey must have thought he deserved more as a former movie star.
