The death of Cecil the Lion was one of the most devastating news items of this week. Everyone is pretty much in agreement that the dentist who killed him was in the wrong, and some people have gone as far as publicly rebuking the man on Facebook. One of those people is none other than actor/governator/body builder/overall bad-ass Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnie has been absolutely crushing it on social media recently, starting with his comments that completely annihilated a homophobic idiot and now with this. So, let me just show you what this man had to say...
Everything about this is amazing. Like, literally everything. He's in front of a stop sign, doing the whole stop "talk to the hand" thing. I don't know if you noticed, but he's also got callouses on his hand which means he's still deadlifting 20x more than you or I ever could.
The man took time out of his busy schedule to address an important issue. And I like that he didn't just talk, he offered a call-to-action. He left a link that I'll share as well, which helps animals like Cecil and I'm sure this promotional move has helped tremendously. Here's the link, FYI:
I'm loving every single thing about this move from Arnold, which can't be said by many who saw Terminator Genisys. But Arnold has so much money and influence that one bad movie will never hurt him. Also, I actually enjoyed it and thought Emilia Clarke was delightful. Anyway, I digress.
Bottom line is... don't kill lions, people. It isn't brave or cool. It's just effed up.
