A photo of Hollywood Director Steven Spielberg on the sets of his film Jurassic Park recently went viral on the net. Internet Humourist, Jay Branscomb posted the picture 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."

What followed, was something no one had anticipated. Apparently not many got the joke and lashed out at the Director for 'killing' an actual Dinosaur.

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

Another facebook user wrote, "Steven Spielberg has absolutely no respect for animals.Posing like that infront of the animal is barbaric."

The outraged animal lovers were then mocked by many who did understand the satirical post, resulting in Branscomb's post receiving more than 10,000 likes and over 6000 comments. Branscomb reacted to the whole thing by declaring 'it looks like I finally won the internet (this week)".

However he later took to Facebook to suggest that the comments were a spoof. Whatever that may be, the internet got something very interesting to talk about!
