Legendary Director Ridiculed For Killing Endangered Dinosaur
There’s been a lot of outrage on Facebook lately about people posting photos of hunting and killing of animals.
Steven Spielberg recently was recently ridiculed on Facebook after someone posted a picture of him in front of a dead dinosaur. Now he didn’t really kill the dinosaur, it was a movie prop, and if you remember, dinosaurs are extinct.
That didn’t stop a whole lot of people on Facebook from becoming completely outraged about the photo .
“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,” the author of the Facebook post wrote. (He was joking)
Of course as Kate and I have said many times on our show, you can’t always tell when someone is joking or being cynical on social web sites like Facebook.
And in this case, a lot of people on Facebook didn’t think it was a joke.
The post went viral
“That’s Steven Spielberg, director of Jurassic Park!” one commenter wrote. This got a response of “I don’t care who he is he should have not shot that animal.”
Other people posted calling Spielberg “inhumane” and “disgusting” and proclaimed they’d never watch his movies again because he’s an “animal killer.”
Is it just me, or are people getting dumber?
