Outcry after Ricky Gervais tweets horrific picture of female hunter posing with dead giraffe




Twitter fans of Ricky Gervais have been left disgusted after the star shared a horrifying picture of a heartless female hunter lying next to a beautiful giraffe that she has killed.

The star is bringing awareness to the horrors of Rebecca Francis, whose stomach-churning picture shows her happily posing next to a dead giraffe.

Ricky shared the picture, writing: "What must've happened to you in your life to make you want to kill a beautiful animal & then lie next to it smiling?"

The image has had over 20,000 retweets, and users have been left horrified by it.

One user wrote: "Lack of intelligence and empathy. Add to that money and privilege and you get a**holes smiling beside murdered beauty."

Another said: "Mental b**** has a whole website of fucked up nonsense....be nice if she had to go one on one (no weapons)!"

While another added: "I hope that b**** gets mauled to death one day."

According to the Mirror, Francis, from Utah, America, has presented TV series Eye of the Hunter, and says on her website: "We hunt elk and deer every year without fail, even through pregnancy, and nursing babies." Nice.

The Metro reports that she won the reality TV series Extreme Huntress, and that she has also killed brown bears, moose, zebras, and antelopes.

Her list of animals that she brags about 'taking with a bow' is almost as provocative as this picture. She writes: "A 10 1/2 ft. brown bear, black bear, shiras moose, alaskan moose, dall sheep, stone sheep, desert bighorn ram, rocky mountain bighorn ram, mule deer, whitetail deer, elk, mountain goat, antelope, arapawa ram, kudu, zebra, black wildebeest, giraffe, springbuck, blesbuck, lynx, badger, and squirrel."
