Viewers where left outraged as Thomson, who denied being a trophy hunter, claimed his career choice was more akin to a brain surgeon.

He added he would never allow emotions to cloud his judgment while hunting the animals.

“I felt nothing. If I had got emotionally involved in what I was doing, I would never have been able to get my job done,” said Thomson.

The hunter argued with Morgan’s questioning claiming his job was not for enjoyment, but part of government-funded culling is necessary to control the animals which claimed were destroying the national parks in South Africa.

The live interview became more intense as Morgan described Thomson’s “detached” language as barbaric.

Before long a shouting match ensued as Thomson began pointing to the camera insisted t Morgan had no idea how the culling impacted him.

“It’s very easy for you to sit in an armchair in London and not have to contend with what the African people have to contend with,” Thomson argued.

The interview sparked a furious response from animal lovers and viewers rallied to Morgan’s usually side of the debate.

“It’s not often I agree with anything @piersmorgan has to say but in this case well said and well done on taking on this hideous man,” wrote one user.
