EXCLUSIVE! Lisa Vanderpump SLAMS Cecil The Lion’s Killer — But Does She Feel The Public Backlash Is Too Much??

no title

Lisa Vanderpump is livid!

The reality TV star and animal rights activist unleashed a tirade on Twitter Tuesday after learning dentist Walter Palmer paid to hunt and kill Cecil the lion.

She shared:

Well, we EXCLUSIVELY caught up with Lisa at a Vanderpump Rules event at Frederic Fekkai‘s L.A. salon Thursday night, and she was still angry and upset about the horrific incident:

“This is a man who is a serial animal killer. You work as hard as he does to earn $50,000 and then want to go [to Africa] and bring a lion’s head back. To be, it seems its like a sadistic sickness.”

Earlier this week, actress Mia Farrow tweeted the address of Palmer’s dental practice, and Lisa herself retweeted the office’s number. But have their actions and the public backlash — which has led to heightened security in Palmer’s town — been too much?

The restauranteur confessed:

“Not everybody makes the right decision when feelings are running high. I retweeted his phone number. Should I have done it? Probably not. But the punishment should befit the crime. There’s a lot of public outrage and it’s a very sad situation.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star added:

“It was brutal and it was wrong. He should be taken back to Zimbabwe and should be tried there.”

On Friday, Zimbabwe officials announced they want to extradite Palmer, so Cecil’s killer may be brought to justice.
