It was meant to be a joke, but a lot of people weren’t laughing after a man named Jay Branscomb posted a photo on his Facebook page of Steven Spielberg with a dinosaur.
Branscomb wrote under the photo: “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.”

Branscomb reportedly said it was meant to make his followers laugh, but instead, it caused a freak-out. Some thought it was genuine; with some people commenting that they couldn’t believe he would kill an endangered species.
The photo is actually Spielberg with a mechanical triceratops on the set of ‘Jurrasic Park’ in 1992.
