A picture of Steven Spielberg posing in front of a lifeless triceratops went viral and causes controversy.
The public distaste for hunting rare and endangered animals has become apparent recently in response to various related social media posts by celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, as well as by a far less famous Texas Cheerleader. As reported by Yahoo News the fake photo created on the Jurassic Park set has already have been shared over 30,000 times.
Despite common knowledge about dinosaurs extinction and confirmation by The Belfast Telegraph that the triceratops is in fact mechanical, Internet users continue to be disgusted by the image.
At this point, most of the buzz may be more targeted on pointing out the gullibility of the Facebook community. However, having said that, the one thing that is very clear is the public's inclination to protect rare game animals via their computer screens and share buttons.
