A protected lion named Cecil was illegally hunted by an American dentist and everyone lost their sh*t.

While vigilante Internet justice can be very satisfying, it's also a dark cesspool. You can stir it, but there's a chance you might get sucked deep down into the depths. This week many people have thrown themselves into the muck for what they consider a good cause: destroying the life of Walter Palmer, dentist and endangered wildlife hunter.

After Palmer was exposed as the murderer of beloved Zimbabwean lion Cecil, the hordes set their comments to kill, not stun. His Facebook page is down, his Twitter is down, his website is sunk and his Yelp review page is completely nuts. In the clip above, Jimmy Kimmel doesn't hesitate to advertise his identity further and also takes some very well deserved shots at the creep, like, "Is it that difficult for you to get an erection?"
