Everyone from television host Jimmy Kimmel to supermodel Cara Delevingne have blasted hunter Dr. Walter Palmer paid $50,000 to kill Cecil the Lion during a hunting expedition. Liberal hollywood has tried and convicted Palmer in the court of public opinion, and many are calling him the most hated man in America, even though everything he did was perfectly legal.
According to the Daily Mail, country music singer Ted Nugent has defied the liberal lynch mob to defend Palmer, saying that killing animals like Cecil is “essential” to make sure the environment is not overrun with deadly beasts. When asked by a fan on Facebook what he thought about the controversy, Nugent didn’t hold back with his response:
“the [sic] whole story is a lie. It was a wild lion from a “park” where hunting is legal & ESSENTIAL beyond the park borders. all animals reproduce every year & would run out of room/food to live w/o [without] hunting. I will write a full piece on this joke asap. God are people stupid.”
Nugent is virtually the only public figure who has stood up for Palmer, who has been forced to close down his dentist office in the face of this backlash. We applaud Nugent for having the courage to stand by him!
