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.”

Celebrities are speaking out on social media after the Confederate flag was taken down in South Carolina on Friday morning (July 10).

The historic moment came weeks after the Charleston church shooting and lots of pressure on lawmakers to remove the symbol of racism.

'Every Single Word' Tumblr Highlights Lack of Diversity in Film

A new Tumblr has gone viral after showcasing diversity issues in Hollywood.

Run by Hispanic actor/director Dylan Marron, the blog features clips from mainstream films that compile every word spoken by a person of color in that movie.

Films like Wedding Crashers only have 39 seconds worth of footage, while Black Swan has even fewer with 24.

The edited clips also show how limiting the roles are – with people of color playing an assistant, a bus driver, a minister, and other very brief parts.

Watch the example below for The Fault in Our Stars.
