No, Steven Spielberg Didn’t Kill a Dinosaur Despite Photo That Has Gone Viral
A Facebook meme-maker by the name of Jay Branscomb has a pretty good following on the social media giant as he takes on items in the news ranging from militia to the outrage surrounding the teenage cheerleader turned hunter who has taken a LOT of heat for posing with the animals she has killed like lions, leopards and elephants.
But last week when Branscomb posted the above photo of director Sgteven Spielberg in front of a triceratops from his movie 'Jurassic Park' 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.", no one could have imagined that people would actually take the photo serious...but they have and the responses more than the photo itself have gone viral!
Some Facebook users were outraged: PenelopeRayzor Bachand said: “Steven Spielberg, I’m disappointed in you. I’m not watching any of your movies again ANIMAL KILLER.”
Another user said: "I agree....I'm sick and tired of "humanitarians" going on and on about population growth, pollution etc. then condoning the killing, unnecessary mind you, of innocent animals. Enough is enough!"
Of course then the internet turned on the people who failed to realize that dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years which made the post even funnier.
As of this morning, Branscomb's post has been shared nearly 32,000 times and many of the original, terribly idiotic posts have been removed by the person that posted them after being mocked unmercifully.
