We all know the internet is full of some pretty stupid people. If something appears on Facebook, then there are men and women everywhere who think it must be true. However, I have never seen anything quite as moronic as this particular story.
Director Stephen Spielberg has received a load of abuse after a satirical picture of him posing with a dinosaur he had ‘shot’ was placed on Facebook.
A post put on the site went as follows.
“Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter posing happily next to a Triceratops he had just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man.”
The picture was posted of him posing next to a “dead” triceratops on the set of his hit 1993 film Jurassic Park
Anyone with a brain will have worked out that this was in response to all those fake photoshopped pictures of celebrity hunters with their ‘prey’.
However, the fact that dinosaur’s actually died out 66 million years ago seems to have been lost on a number of people.
One 19-year-old Texas lady posted: “He’s an inumane (good spelling love) pr * ** and an animal killer.”
Another named Penelope ranted: “Steven Spielberg, I’m disappointed in you. I’m not watching any of your movies again, ANIMAL KILLER.”
A livid Vincent Smith wrote: “I don’t care who he is, he should not have shot that animal.”
The rather hilarious stunt was the brainchild of Washington satirist Jay Branscomb and just goes to show one thing….don’t believe everything you read on the internet!
Since then, he has specialised in articles on the battle for equal rights for sex workers, sexual health, as well as bringing the readers fun news from around the world. He also has a major interest in LGBT rights, and is an active campaigner in this field.
When he isn't fighting the good fight, he enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, and young daughter. He also enjoys reading and taking long walks.
