The Internet is Very Angry at Steven Spielberg for Killing a Dinosaur

Just in case you were feeling mildly positive about the future of the human race today, an internet prankster by the name of Jay Branscomb has come along with a helpful reminder that we’re all fucked and Idiocracy is coming true as we speak.

For trolling purposes, Branscomb posted picture of Steven Spielberg from the early 1990s, posing next to a model triceratops from Jurassic Park, with an outraged caption about how the director had just hunted and killed the beast. 

“Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered,” he said. “Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man.” His plan went even better than expected.

Facebook users, cheerily oblivious to the fact that the triceratops died out 65 million years ago, were quick to pile on with their unfiltered angst and outrage. One branded Spielberg a “disgusting, insane prick” as she vowed to never watch any of his movies again.

“I don’t care who he is, he should not have shot that animal!” said another. 

As of right now, the photo has close to 36,000 shares, and the backlash to the backlash is already in full swing, with a comments thread full of memes about how ‘Murica is dumb, and gifs of Michael Jackson eating popcorn.

“Where was this kind of outrage when George Lucas slaughtered an innocent tauntaun for the sake of a scene in The Empire Strikes Back?” wrote one typically droll user.

And thusly, the internet continues to consume itself.
