By now you know all too well the controversy surrounding the untimely death of Cecil the Lion at the hands of Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer. You’ve seen the social media backlash and the backlash to the backlash, witnessed celebrities weigh in and tear up, and watched Palmer join (to quote The New York Times) an “ever-expanding group of people who have become targets of Internet vigilantism, facing a seemingly endless shaming until the next issue comes along.”
Comedy webshow So That Happened decided to take a swipe at this media circus surrounding Cecil using footage from Disney’s beloved The Lion King. The results? Let’s just say Palmer won’t be jamming to “Hakuna Matata” anytime soon without thinking of Simba coming to Minnesota to claw his throat out.
