6. Celebrities Outrage
Debra Messing and Ricky Gervais were among the first celebrities to express their outrage about Talley’s killing of the giraffe. They spoke against her in their ways.
Messing despised how the dead carcass of a rare black giraffe was turned into a prop for a photograph of a smiling hunter who had killed it, to begin with. Gervais posted, “What’s 16 feet tall and has a c*** on the back of its neck?”
Talley refused to back down and apologize. She instead questioned the motive of people, including celebrities who spoke against her actions.
5. Death Threats
As soon as the photographs went viral, things have been uneasy for Talley. A post by a social media group known as Africalandpost called her a “white American savage” and “partly Neanderthal,” among other things.
She even received death threats from some people also on social media.
Talley admitted to having some challenges with all the harassment and threats, although this seemed surprising given how little she cared about other people’s opinions about the killing.
Some were sharing her address on the Internet and calling her employer to get her fired.
