Brokely Carmichael and a number of other Twitter users reacted to Cecil the Lion’s death in a unique and parodic way. Although we were all disappointed at the recent death of the Zimbabwean lion, some think the reaction of the internet has been bizarre because the lion’s death is being treated like the death of a human.
Imagine if all the celebrities willing to tweet about #CecilTheLion were willing to do the same for black humans killed by cops.

Although Carmichael’s tweets are humorous, they prove a point. There were many others also….

I'm waiting for Fox News to call #CecilTheLion a thug. Or at least deride the fact that he's the unelected King of the Jungle.

NRA: "#CecilTheLion would be alive today if he had exercised his 2nd Amendment right to carry an AR-15 assualt rifle."
