Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore joined the chorus of criticism against Walter J. Palmer, the dentist who killed Cecil the Lion, during “The Nightly Show” on Wednesday.

Describing Palmer as an “a—hole DDS,” Wilmore took a jab at his profession. “Did you say the hunter was a dentist? As if people needed another reason to be scared of them,” Wilmore said. “Four out of five dentists recommend Crest. I guess the fifth was too busy murdering lions to take the poll.”
