If receiving the spotlight on the Empire State Building wasn’t #AllLionsMatter news enough, prepare to choke on some apples with the news of Cecil The Lion’s next memorial.

The deceased animal who was killed by American dentist Walter Palmer and prompted a national outcry like Martin Luther King had been slain, is set to be immortalized with his own life-sized statue.

“We are in the process of having a large life size statue replica made of the beautiful Cecil to be erected at the entrance to the Hwange National Parks,” the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force said on their Facebook page. “We have asked the very talented John Binder of Birds for Africa to make the iconic statue for us. We will know of the costs in due course….this will be an excellent reminder to all who visit the park of where Cecil the Lion used to live.”

No where in the statement did they indicate the Cecil The Lion statue will serve as an anti-hunting remainder but apparently that’s what we’re supposed to take from it, according to several commenters.

Meanwhile, Zachary Hammond’s family wants to know why the public isn’t doesn’t give a damn about their son being unarmed and killed about a police officer.

Maybe because they were too busy crying on Mufasa’s grave and wasting energy trying to unravel the #BlackLivesMatter movement?
