Jimmy Kimmel Is Really Upset About the Dentist That Killed Cecil the Lion

The late-night host even got choked up talking about it

Jimmy Kimmel is known for his biting wit, but on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night he was as serious as could be on the topic of Cecil the lion.

People around the world have been outraged at the news that a 55-year-old American dentist Walter Palmer hunted, maimed and, ultimately, killed a lion during a safari holiday in Zimbabwe. It also emerged that Palmer had hunted numerous big-game animals in the past. But the lion that he killed most recently turned out to be Cecil, a star attraction at Hwange National Park, who was being studied and tracked by Oxford University.

Count Kimmel among the outraged and he used his late-night show to condemn the dentist, asking “is it that difficult for you to get an erection that you need to kill things that are stronger than you?” The comedian was so upset, he even teared up as he called on people to make donations to the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit at Oxford, saying he wanted to turn the story into a “positive” one.

Property Mogul Wants to Create New Country For Refugees to Solve the Migrant Crisis

Europe Migrant Crisis
Georgi Licovski—EPA Migrants react after they couldn't find a seat on the train heading to the Serbian border, where they will migrate towards Western European nations, at the train station in Gevgelija, Macedonia, July 26, 2015.

He's dubbed it 'Refugee Nation'

American property mogul Jason Buzi says he has a solution for the global migrant crisis: a new country just for refugees.

“We have a lot of stateless individuals all over the world right now,” Buzi told the Washington Post in an interview. “The idea is, if we could give them a state of their own, at least they’d have a place to live in safety and be allowed to live and work like everybody else.”

“It’s almost shocking to me that nobody’s talking about this as a solution,” he added. Around the world, more than 60 million people have been displaced from their homes, with many living in large camps in poor conditions. State leaders, particularly in Europe, have struggled on how to address the influx of migrants into their countries.

Buzi claims he has already spent between $10,000 and $15,000 out of his own pocket setting up a team to promote the new state, which he calls Refugee Nation. The mogul suggests that an unhibited island owned by another state might be suitable for the new country. He’s also hoping to get support from heavy weights to get the state set up, saying, “If you’ve got Angelina Jolie, for instance, behind it, it’s going to influence a lot more people and get more people to know about it.”

But when it comes to how the newly created state would function — socially, politically and financially — Buzi says details will have to be worked out in the future. “Right now it’s a little like meeting a girl on a first date,” he told the Post, “I’m not thinking yet about what I’m going to name my children, right?”

Internet Rallies Behind Fired Toll Booth Worker

The employee had worked at the toll for 29 years

A toll booth collector named Vladislav Samsonov — but goes by Sam — in Boca Grande, Fl, was fired for helping someone out.

Samsonov, a military veteran who had worked at the booth for 29 years, said he was fired for covering someone’s toll fee out of his own pocket. NBC2 reports that Samsonov realized he had charged a truck driver too little and covered the difference with his own money — something he had occasionally done in the past when drivers were short on cash. “In my eyes there was no crime committed, I just helped somebody out,” he told the outlet. “I’d put the six dollars in, I got the six dollars back the next day.”

His former employer, the Gasparilla Island Bridge Authority, told NBC2 that they couldn’t comment on the issue.

When Samsonov’s daughter Patricia posted what had happened to Facebook, hundreds of people shared the story and offered kind words and fond memories of the beloved toll booth worker.

For his part, Samsonov told NBC2 he was overwhelmed with the support, saying, “Makes me feel good, makes me want to cry.”

Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox Finally Got to Meet

The two finally met in real life

For weeks now, Orange Is The New Black star Laverne Cox has been loudly championing Caitlyn Jenner on social media and in interviews. (Her praise can be summed up with this quote: “Yasss Gawd! Werk Caitlyn! Get it!”)

And for her part, Jenner has reciprocated Cox’s praise, posting to Twitter that the actress is “fierce and fabulous” and that her support “means the world.”

But it wasn’t until Sunday night that the two women actually met face to face, at a special private advance screening of Jenner’s upcoming E! docuseries about her transition, I Am Cait.

The two were joined by a number of other well-known transgender women for the screening, including actress and performance artist Candis Cayne.

Paul McCartney’s Ex-Wife Says She Teaches Daughter Music, not the Beatle

Heather Mills

Heather Mills says she oversees their daughter's musical education

It’s been seven years since Paul McCartney and Heather Mills divorced, but it seems time hasn’t healed some wounds.

In an interview with the Guardian, Mills threw shade at the former Beatle, saying, “I don’t want to go into my second marriage too much because if you haven’t got something nice to say about someone you shouldn’t say anything at all, and it had a lot to do with the person I married.” She also opened up about the former couple’s daughter, Beatrice, and revealed who is overseeing the 11-year-old girl’s musical education: “I taught her the saxophone, because her father can’t read music so I do all the music teaching.”

Mills also noted that, “Beatrice hates fame and the whole limelight thing. She wants to be a marine biologist, not a pop star.” Ouch.

Though it seems it’s not all bad blood between the exes, as Mills does concede that Beatrice is “a brilliant poet so obviously gets that from [her father].”

Rihanna Goes on a Gruesome Revenge Spree in ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ Video

About as NSFW as you can get

When fans first heard Rihanna’s track “Bitch Better Have My Money” earlier this year, they knew to expect that the accompanying video would likely be as combative as the lyrics. The new video does not disappoint.

In the seven-minute clip, Rihanna and two side-kicks embark on a gruesome revenge plot that would make any mafia boss proud. The video bloodbath also features appearances from Mads Mikkelsen and Eric Roberts, who star in Hannibal and The Human Centipede III, respectively, so you know they feel right at home.

With graphic content including — but not limited to — nudity, violence and torture, this video isn’t for the faint of heart. (Or, probably, your work computer.)

This Orphaned Tree Kangaroo Was Raised by a Surrogate Wallaby Mother

Adelaide Zoo

"If we wanted to save the joey we had to try our luck"

Zoo keepers in Adelaide, Australia, saved the life of an orphaned tree kangaroo by using a surrogate wallaby mother, in what the zoo says is a world first.

The joey, known as Makaia, was left orphaned at just five weeks when zoo keepers discovered that a fallen tree branch had killed his mother. As Makaia was too young to be hand-reared, the Adelaide Zoo staff decided to try to “cross-foster” the little kangaroo, placing the joey into the pouch of a surrogate wallaby mother.

While cross-fostering has been successfully done before, Adelaide Zoo veterinarian David McLelland said that this was the first attempt with a tree kangaroo. “Not only are tree kangaroos distant relatives of wallabies, they also have many behavioural and physical differences,” McLelland said in a press release on the Adelaide Zoo website. “We had no idea if the yellow-foot would accept the tree kangaroo joey, but if we wanted to save the joey we had to try our luck.”
