After the recent controversy over Kendall Jones, the 19-year-old Texas cheerleader posing with exotic kills, Jay Branscomb, a Facebook pundit posted an image of Steven Spielberg posing with a dead looking realistic triceratops prop from the 1993 blockbuster “Jurassic Park.”

And people thought it was real.

That’s right, there were people in this world who were outraged that one of the most famous Hollywood figures of all time killed an “exotic animal” — in this case a dinosaur. Really.

They’ve been extinct for 66 million years, but one genius blasted Spielberg and said she would never again watch his movies.

The image was shared a more than 32,000 times and garnered almost 6,000 comments at the time of this post.

UK Daily Mail did a screenshot of my favorite exchange.

50% of the comments are from geniuses reminding everyone that dinosaurs are extinct. Just trolls feeding trolls.

God help us if any of these comments are genuine.

In case you’ve never seen the movie. Here’s the memorable scene where they find a sick triceratops and try to give it medical attention.

Get Ellie Sattler and Alan Grant here to revive this sucker STAT!
