Movie director Steven Spielberg is the “talk of the internet” after a photo of him posing with a ‘dead’ dinosaur went viral, according to a report from WGHP.

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 photo was meant to be satire, went viral, and was shared more than 32,000 times, because so many people believed 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.”

According to the report, the post went up days after Facebook deleted photos from the page of Kendall Jones, a 19-year-old Texas cheerleader and hunter who posted numerous photos of herself posing with a variety of animals that she shot while on safari in Zimbabwe.

And if that wasn’t enough, he followed up the dinosaur photo with a photo of Spielberg posing with a shark and the caption: “Folks, we need your help identifying the vicious shark-killer shown posing with his illegal prey.”
