Cecil The Lion's Death Sparks Outrage Among Celebs

Cecil the Lion‘s killing has outraged people around the world and tons of celebs are speaking out to show their disgust at alleged killer, Walter J. Palmer.

The Minnesota dentist reportedly paid $55,000 to kill the iconic lion in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. Cecil was lured out of the park and shot to death.

The lion was known to guests who visited the park and enjoyed human contact.

“In early July, I was in Zimbabwe on a bow hunting trip for big game. I hired several professional guides and they secured all proper permits. To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted,” Palmer said in a statement. “I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt. I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt.”

    Not only did he kill Cecil, but he has now endangered the rest of his tribe. This P.O.S needs to pay for his crime.

  • John

    Disgusting pig. Hope he pays.

  • Ause Ekel

    Disgusting human being. Any person who kills an animal is a coward. Or who uses it for entertainment and make money.

  • SquidBillie

    This dentist’s comment was pathetic…he would not take any responsibility for what he did. He’s killed enough animals, he needs to stop. And his patients need to go to another dentist and hit him in the wallet.

  • Casey C

    WHAT F IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?? Why kill ANY lion? its not like there’s millions of them around. for christs sake. what a disgusting excuse for a human being

  • Mike1288

    I am alright with hunting for food, some in my family do it but they eat almost every bit. I do not however understand hunting for sport. What this guy did was wrong and now they have found out he lured him out just makes it even more disgusting.

  • slobodan

    One way for him to prove he’s a man. And if he can’t do it, he should be extradited to Zimbabwe.

  • Drew Flanagan

    Is there anything that Ricky Gervais doesn’t get outraged about?

  • AeeJay

    55k to kill something.. if that is not a psychosis in the brain..then please tell me what is?

    Dr Walter Palmer karma is a b@tch ..you will get what’s coming to you.

  • nancy

    I hope something hunts him! What he did was disgusting. Such a beautiful lion.
    This man deserves to be killed. He and his family should be hunted down. I hope they are r*ped first then killed. He does not deserve to even go to jail. Just let him be killed.

  • Nathan

    F–k this man. He is the reason why I hate the human race. How could he kill this beautiful lion? Or any other living thing for that matter?

  • Nathan

    He is scum. Someone should do him what he did to that lion and countless other animals he has killed.

  • Maggie P.U.

    How is it he “didn’t know” yet the whole world did and does……look at the comments of the parks visits when he was seen…for starters….This was deliberate and intentional murder…. And he lured Cecil like he did the others… He isn’t a hunter. He is a coward. It is bad enough, that it was Cecil who everyone knew…including the world…..and then the fact he was COLLARED which was/is visible. That POS knew….and so did his “aides” what they did is unforgivable… Deliberate and intentional. I pray karma ruins him. His business will suffer, because this will show the type of person he is….and also he is prosecuted for this. Throw away the key. Second, Cecil’s pride will suffer if not perish….and the demise of the black maned lion will sink lower…… Hunting for the sake of entertainment in killing an animal is sick. No respect for any living thing…. and then of course money and greed had to play a part… Costing a noble and beautiful animal who earned his place on this planet his life….. RIP Cecil, big boy….. Gone but never forgotten. This “dentist” should have his license revoked. Because if he has no compassion for things that have a right to live their lives in peace….nor respect… then he should not be in a profession that cares about others period. He has shown what he really is. A cold blooded and cowardly killer. He and that “Veteranarian” should go into business together…. Killing of the innocent…. and doing it the cowardly way… He might as well as killed the cubs….He wrote their death sentence.

    Trophy hunting is just heartbreaking. The lowest of the low. It’s the Napolean syndrome all over again. What does it say about you when you have shoot a beautiful living creature dead to prove something? Pathetic.

  • cdesharn

    He didn’t look too sorry with that big ugly smiley face in his picture! He’s only sorry after that fact that he got exposed! Stupid ass should be shot and made to suffer like he made that poor lion. What a heartbreaking story. I’m still crying about it.

  • Guest

    I hope Walter Palmer gets kidnapped by sadistic aliens who perform all kinds of experiments on him.

  • forest4trees

    Short dick syndrome.

  • damian gonzales

    much hypocrisy in many of these celebrities and much hypocrisy in the comments. I am not advocating the dentist, for me, this man can die today but many people who are outraged by this are the same as paying a ticket to go to a zoo or sea world using animals for entertainment. if I know, those places do not kill their animals but mistreated and used for cheap entertainment. Abuse is abuse, either by killing the animal or using them to entertain people.

  • HiImHigh

    Scumbag. He should be killed.

  • LiiL

    Disgusting human being. What is the pleasure of this “sport”( a.k.a killing wild animals just for fun ) at all? why are these people paying thousands for that?? Why dont they support the wildlife instead? Humanity goes in a wrong direction.

  • HH

    I so agree Maggie. This guy is trash and I don’t think there is anything that would justly this. I don’t care what lawyer he hires nothing can or ever will justify the killing of, well let’s be honest….a beloved pet.

    That he was. People even waited for him to move in the road, foe example. He was loved and special. Now his cubs face death. Another lion will take over the pride and kill them.
