"First of all," Kimmel points out, "stop saying you 'took' the animal. You take Aspirin; you killed the lion."
He goes on to condemn the brutal practice of trophy hunting. "Why are you shooting a lion in the first place? I'm honestly curious to know why a human being would feel compelled to do this - how is that fun? Is it that difficult for you to get an erection that you have to kill things?"
Not categorically against hunting to eat or keep animal populations healthy, Kimmel points out that it's totally unnecessary to go trophy hunting. "If you're some A-hole dentist who just wants a lion's head over the fireplace in his man cave so his douchebag buddies can gather around and drink scotch and tell him how awesome he is, that's just vomitous."
And it wasn't the first time, Kimmel points out, showing photos of Palmer with his previous trophies.
Kimmel gets choked up as he appeals to his audience to help "have some good come out of this tragedy." As he asks that the public to help the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford, who had been researching this beautiful animal, he has to pause and take a deep breath before continuing with the end of his segment.
