MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A photograph of movie director Steven Spielberg posing with a ‘dead’ dinosaur has the internet outraged.

WGHP reports that it all started after internet humorist Jay Branscomb posted the photo on Facebook 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.”

The picture, which was meant to be humorous, was shared more than 32,000 times, because so many people thought it was real.

“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.”

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

The picture was posted just days after Facebook deleted photos of Kendall Jones — a Texas Tech cheerleader that has become the center of controversy for pictures she took next to exotic animals that she killed herself.

Jay Branscomb followed up the dinosaur picture with another photo of Spielberg posing with a shark. This picture was captioned: “Folks, we need your help identifying the vicious shark-killer shown posing with his illegal prey.”

      Sounds like you’re a typical neocon that paints everyone with a broad brush when judging people. I’m one or your “liberals” and I think people responding to that photo are idiots as well. Your post just goes to show that people who live in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones.

    Um, Has NO ONE watched the original Jurassic Park movie????? And NOT recognize that this is the sick triceratops???? That he was posing by his puppet dinosaurs from that movie wake up people!

    Wow. The funniest part of all this is that real dumb, impressionable (and largely conservative) people are falling for this bad “real” news story, and are getting really mad at people who they don’t even realize are only jokingly pretending to be dumb and impressionable in reacting to a *fake* story. You couldn’t make this ish up!

      Sorry, you have it wrong, the liberals believe this story, their comments are real, not fake. In fact you’re just another example of how liberals don’t know what’s real and what isn’t.

        Yep. You got me. This one sounds pretty real:

        “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.”

        Apologies. Didn’t mean to burst the Fox News bubble. Back inside you go🙂

      I think the type of person who would believe this story probably wouldn’t have the passion or desireto ppursue independent thought about politics. They probably believe whatever friends and media tell them. That said, I think they probably exist on both sides of the aisle.

    The jokes on them. I thought all the athiest liebrals believed that dinosaurs were here millions of years ago and were never here at the same time as man! They laugh at the Bible and now He is laughing at them!!! Hahahaha !

  • Victoria

    Sigh. This is why people hate Facebook. The people accused of being so stupid were joking back with the same tone as the original post. The outrage should be over the pedantic types that can’t stop explaining that dinosaurs no longer exist.

    • Jessica

      Lol! I can’t believe people think it was real. I’d like to see them when they realize dinosaurs are extinct! If they even know what that means…
