People on the Internet Think Steven Spielberg Killed a Dinosaur

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A vintage photo of famed director Steven Spielberg on the set of Jurassic Park went hugely viral this week, leaving many Internet users up in arms.

Because they believed Spielberg killed the creature for sport, obviously.

Steven Spielberg Kills Dinosaur

Jurassic Park, based on the Michael Crichton book of the same name, tells the story of a man who utilizes ancient dinosaur DNA to bring them back as a tourist attraction.

Needless to say:

  1. That was a bad idea in the book/movie, as those fools ran amok
  2. No actual triceratops has been sighted in 65 million years

You wouldn't know the latter if you read people's Facebook feeds this week, though, after humorist Jay Branscomb posted the photo with the caption:

"Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man."

Cue the online furor from people not realizing he's kidding, or that dinosaurs went extinct a while back. Maybe Kendall Jones is still fresh in their minds?

The rant pasted onto the photo above says it all. As do these people:

  • "Steven Spielberg, I’m disappointed in you. I’m not watching any of your movies again ANIMAL KILLER."
  • "Disgraceful. No wonder dinosaurs became extinct. Sickos like this kill every last one of them as soon as they are discovered."
  • "He should be in prison."
  • "He should be killed instead."
  • "Beautiful creature innocently living millions of years ago then this monster comes along."

Soon enough, it took on a life of its own, spawning all manner of jokes, Spielberg references and vitriol ... from haters and haters of those who believed this was real.

Where will this rank among the Great Facebook Fails of All Time? That's for you to decide after scrolling through so many gems we've compiled here:

Are there people that are actually this ignorant? No wonder the world is like it is. Someone needs to pick up a book and start reading. Dinosaurs are extinct and that right there is a darn animatronic or robot for those that don't know what that is......

Americans are stupid. They believe the world is 6000 years old and Man cohabited with dinosaurs. The world laughs at you.
