Actress Mia Farrow got hit with some heated Twitter tirades after she blasted out the business address of the Minnesota dentist who killed the popular Zimbabwean lion Cecil.

The now deleted tweet read "#CecilTheLion- Gentle protector of 6 cubs. Loved by many. Killed by Dentist Walter Palmer," followed by his address. The website Twitchy posted a screen-grab of the tweet, with the address blacked out.

But even after the activist actress deleted the original tweet, she followed up with an identical post, replacing the address with the town he worked in, Mediaite reports.

Some Twitter users were outraged:


While others demanded her account suspension:


A Twitter spokesman said the company doesn't comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons, but noted rules and policies allow some discretion when information has been posted or displayed elsewhere on the Internet prior to being put on Twitter.

Still, users questioned Farrow's intent.


"Unbelievable," another tweeter scolded.


Twitter insults were also hurled by model Cara Delevingne, actress Alyssa Milano and presenter Sharon Osbourne, who between them have 8.39 million followers.


Osbourne, wife of famed rocker Ozzy Osbourne, also tweeted that she hoped that Palmer "loses his home, his practice and his money...."


Meanwhile, more insults poured in on the Yelp review page for the dentist's business, River Bluff Dental.

"I needed a tooth extracted, so Dr. Palmer shot me in the neck with a crossbow, chased and tracked me for 40 hours, and (once I collapsed from pain and exhaustion) removed my entire head and skinned me," wrote Drew C.

Sarah H. wrote: "I'll admit, a trip to the dentist has never been my favorite, but I can't imagine a more horrific experience than waking up to realize a penny of my hard-earned money had gone to assist this man in his heartless pursuit of micropenile compensation."

The website for the River Bluff Dental practice is no longer available online, CNN reports.

Palmer has said he "deeply regrets" killing the 13-year-old lion, who was found shot, skinned and decapitated beyond the safety of the Hwange National Park, where he had been a drawcard for tourists, CNN reports.
