The Jurassic Park Facebook joke that flew right over some people's heads

The Jurassic Park Facebook joke that flew right over some people's heads

When a photo, a video, or a post gets put up on the Internet, there's a good chance that it can go "viral." Going "viral" online means that a picture, video or post has been shared on multiple platforms and has gathered millions of views.

Some of these can garner responses that are heartwarming or just plain mean.

Kendall Jones, a 19-year-old cheerleader and hunter from Texas, posted several pictures on Facebook of her posing with animals that she killed while on Safari in Zimbabwe. It unintentionally sparked a viral hate campaign that prompted Facebook to remove some of her photos on the grounds that it violated a policy against glorifying violence.

However, the "Kill Kendall Jones" Facebook page was still active, and the same photos that were removed from Kendall's page were featured prominently on this horrible Facebook page. The page has since been taken down without comment by Facebook.

One Facebook user, Jay Branscomb, decided to make light of the situation and posted a photo that was taken in 1993 of famous director Steven Spielberg sitting next to the animatronic Triceratops that was featured in the blockbuster film "Jurassic Park."

The caption posted with the photo 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."

Branscomb's post was obviously meant to be a joke, but somehow has gotten out of hand.
