Jimmy Kimmel Gets Choked Up Talking About Hunted Lion Cecil

Jimmy Kimmel is a funny dude, and his late-night talk show is downright hilarious. But he also knows when he needs to put humor aside to focus on a serious issue, and that’s exactly what happened on Tuesday night during his opening monologue.

Referencing the story of Cecil the Lion, who was allegedly lured out of a Zimbabwe national park and shot to death by American dentist Walter Palmer earlier this month, Kimmel couldn’t help but get choked up.

“Is it that difficult for you to get an erection?” Kimmel seethed. “That you need to kill things that are stronger than you?”

He then went on to urge his audience to make a donation to Oxford’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit, adding, “At the very least, maybe we can show the world that not all American are like this jack-hole.”
