London: Enraged celebs are now taking on Twitter to blast the dentist for paying 35,000 pounds to kill a 13-year-old friendly lion.
Tabloid media revealed that Walter Palmer, a father-of-two from Minnesota killed the loin named Cecil, who was renowned across Zimbabwe, with a bow and arrow on July 1, reported the Mirror.
Soon after its identity was revealed, South African born Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel led the criticism by saying that it was disgusting that people were allowed to kill animals in their natural habitats.
Talking about the incident Cara Delevingne tweeted, "This #WalterPalmer is a poor excuse of a human being!"
While Piers Morgan raged, "I will sell tickets for 50,000 dollars to anyone who wants to come with me and track down fat, greedy, selfish, murderous businessmen like Dr Palmer in their natural habit."
Though the dentist has issued an apology for the incident blaming his guides for the kills and claiming that he was unaware of the big cat's fame, celebs' rage does not seem to settle.
