Former winner of Extreme Huntress show Rebecca Francis has received death threats after British comedian Ricky Gervais posted a picture of her lying next to a dead giraffe and smiling.

On Monday, Gervais tweeted "What must've happened to you in your life to make you want to kill a beautiful animal & then lie next to it smiling?" starting off his online charge against "trophy hunters."

Francis, a mother of nine, who has a website and Facebook page dictated to the dozens of animals she has killed in hunts across Africa and America, found herself in a social media storm after the comedian’s tweet.

Even after this outrage, Gervais continued on with his attacks against her, adding more tweets that mock animal hunters.

Tens of thousands of tourists pay tens of thousands of dollars to travel to Africa and hunt animals, from warthogs to elephants. They pay $20,000-$40,000 to hunt a lion, and around $15,000 to hunt a trophy giraffe.
