Steven Spielberg Meme Fools Internet. Internet, You Are An Idiot

An internet meme that showed director Steven Spielberg lying next to an apparently dead triceratops, a dinosaur that became extinct 70 million years ago, has gone viral, fooling thousands of indignant internet users. The post made its way online earlier this week, with meme maker Jay Branscomb the man behind the image.

Steven SpielbergJurassic World producer Steven Spielberg killed a dinosaur, apparently.

The image shows Spielberg on the set of his classic movie Jurassic Park, grinning next to the movie's sick triceratops. 

Beneath, the caption read: "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."

Thousands of users left comments, lambasting Mr Spielberg for his pre-historic murder.

"I'd love to see these hunters be stopped," one user said. "I think zoos are the best way to keep these innocent animals safe. A**holes like this piece of s**t are going into these beautiful animals HOME and killing them."

"Steven Spielberg I'm disappointed in you. I'm not watching any of your movies again ANIMAL KILLER."

When one user, Vincent Smith, was told that the man in the picture was Steven Spielberg, he replied: "I don't care who he is, he should not have shot that animal."
