On Friday, HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher remarked “good” in reaction to the death of professional game hunter Ian Gibson.
Maher said,”new rule, if you make your living stalking and killing innocent animals as professional game hunter Ian Gibson did, and you’re leading a safari to kill elephants, as Ian Gibson was, and during that safari an elephant tramples you to death, good,” a comment that drew applause from the crowd.
He continued, “we know the elephant is the nobler of the two, because when the hunter wins, it’s the greatest moment of his life, and when the elephant wins, it’s ‘ew, what did I step in?'”
