On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the eponymous Jimmy Kimmel tore apart that lion-killing, rich dentist motherfucker everyone tweeted about yesterday. While urging viewers to visit the Wild Conservation Research Union’s website, Kimmel got all choked up. Touching, I guess, but—Kimmel, my man, did you even know that lion?

Jimmy Kimmel at the lion’s funeral, acting all sad, “That lion was my best friend.” Jimmy Kimmel covering the mirrors. Jimmy Kimmel wearing black for a year, telling everyone he knows he’s in mourning because “someone very close to him” died. Come on, Jimmy Kimmel.

I bet you never even met that lion.
