Dr. Walter J. Palmer, the dentist who killed Cecil the Lion, is unlikely to face any legal consequences for his murderous actions.

Because Cecil wasn't killed on protected land, there's a good chance he'll just get away with it. Well, legally.

Socially, he's going to have a tough time, starting with his dental practice.

Besides gathering and leaving signs and stuffed animals at Palmer's actual offices, protesters have also taken their fight online, posting hundreds of one-star Yelp reviews for his practice.

Of course, it's Yelp, so he may be able to pay to remove those eventually, but for now it's all just too much; he's had to shut down business temporarily.

And for that he's truly sorry.

Palmer penned a letter to his patients apologizing for the inconvenience, saying:

Tom Brady says the NFL can deflate suck his balls!

The New England Patriots quarterback learned on Tuesday that, even after his hearing, the league was going to uphold his four-game suspension over the Deflategate drama.

On Wednesday, the sports star teamed up with the NFL Players Association to sue the football organization over the result of the appeal.

The suit cites that Commissioner Roger Goodell's bias was involved in the decision, and claims the ruling "defied any concept of fundamental fairness."

The 37-year-old hopes the legal battle will successfully vacate the penalties against him. Earlier in the day, he shared a statement about his disappointment with the National Football League.

As of right now, the attractive athlete can participate in preseason play and the team's training camp, but his beautiful behind will be benched until Week 6 of the regular season.

However, if he wins this suit — like he won the 2015 Super Bowl — he could be back in action the first week.

It'll be very inneresting to see how this all plays out.

Terrence Howard's Ex-Wife Is Suing Him For Assault, Emotional Distress, & Defamation Over That Alleged Attack Two Years Ago!

| Filed under: Legal MattersTerrence HowardViolence

Terrence allegedly punched, choked, and threatened Michelle Ghent.

Yikes!

Terrence Howard isn't done with Michelle Ghent — but we're not talking about a rekindled romance! The Empire star is being sued by his ex-wife over an alleged assault from two years ago!

Back in 2013, the 46-year-old and his former flame took a reunion trip to Costa Rica, where Michelle claims her ex punched her in the face, choked her, and threatened to kill her! Woah!

At the time, she walked away with a temporary restraining order, but now she says that's not enough.

She has filed a lawsuit against Terrence for assualt, defamation, and two different types of emotional distress — both negligent and intentional.

Some of the stuff in the legal docs sounds pretty serious, especially the part that mentioned the actor's son, Billy, had to intervene to get his father away from Michelle:

"While Billy tried to pry Defendant's hands from Plaintiff's neck, Defendant whispered to Plaintiff, 'Remember what I told you in Bora Bora? That is what I'm gonna do,' referring to a prior instance where Defendant told Plaintiff that her body would never leave the island. Plaintiff interpreted the reference to mean that Defendant was going to kill her."

What the what?!

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out, since Terrence denied the whole thing back in the day. What do U think about the scary situation, Perezcious readers?

***WARNING: GRAPHIC CASES OF ANIMAL CRUELTY BELOW***

What goes around, comes around!

We can't believe that we live in a world where humans feel the need to viciously murder other living creatures, and Cecil the Lion is just the latest case of animal cruelty in the news.

Walter Palmer, the American dentist who killed Cecil, may still be in hiding, but we're hoping that he will have to eventually face poaching charges in Zimbabwe once he resurfaces.

However, even though Walter has yet to face any immediate legal ramifications for his crime, you can take solace knowing that his vicious slaying has caused his Minnesotan dental practice to close.
