Jimmy Kimmel gets choked up over the death of Cecil the Lion

He slams dentist who killed him!

Jimmy Kimmel got emotional discussing the death of Cecil the Lion, a famous Zimbabwe animal and tourist attraction, on Tuesday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." 

In a four-minute monologue, Kimmel sharply criticized Walter Palmer, the 55-year-old American dentist responsible for hunting and killing the animal.

Palmer and two hunters illegally killed the lion after luring it out of its home at the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe on July 1. After Palmer shot Cecil with a bow and arrow, the animal escaped and survived 40 more hours before the hunters tracked him down and shot him dead. The hunters later skinned and beheaded the caracass.

Kimmel responded to Palmer's statement with a pointed attack: “Stop saying you took the animal. You take aspirin … you killed the animal.”

The talk-show host questioned the motivation behind Palmer's killing of the lion, asking "How is that fun? Is it that difficult for you to get an erection that you need to kill things that are stronger than you?” 

Kimmel went on to mock Palmer by comparing him to alleged rapist Bill Cosby, calling Palmer "the most hated man in America who never advertised Jell-O pudding on television.”
