Jimmy Kimmel Chokes Up Discussing Cecil the Lion: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Jimmy Kimmel got emotional during a three-minute monologue about the death of Cecil the lion, the African big cat that was killed by U.S. hunter Walter Palmer on July 1 in Zimbabwe.


Cecil`s killing sparked a wave of outrage: As reported by CNN, Cecil, 13, was lured out of his home in Hwange National Park, and shot by Palmer with a bow and arrow. Cecil survived for 40 more hours before the hunters tracked him down and killed him with a gun. The lion was later skinned and decapitated."

Jimmy Kimmel host of Jimmy Kimmel Live and former host of the Man Show, is a man`s man, but he got all chocked up during his monologue about the death of Cecil the lion.

Kimmel`s outrage and horror at the death of Cecil is shared by millions all over the world, in a nanosecond Walter Palmer, the sadistic dentist who killed the noble lion, has become the most hated man in America.

Bill Cosby is saying a prayer of thanks -- at least for the moment someone more reprehensible is eliciting the outrage of the Internet.

The cowardly dentist has gone into hiding, what delicious irony the hunter has become the hunted, it would be poetic justice if he was tracked down, skinned alive and beheaded.
