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

"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."
