Jimmy Kimmel Chokes Back Tears In Monologue About Cecil the Lion Via YouTube

You may have probably seen the uproar over the recent killing of Cecil the Lion, a famous animal that was being GPS tracked and studied by researchers at Oxford University.

He was killed by a dentist from Minnesota, Dr. Walter Palmer, who apparently thought he was engaging in a perfectly legal and licensed hunt with local professionals. Many people are outraged over the needless killing of such a beautiful animal, especially when the only reason seems to be “because it was fun.”

Late night talkshow host Jimmy Kimmel has the perfect response. He’s brutally honest, still a little bit funny (but not too much), and is genuinely emotional over the whole situation. Check it out.
