Oh C’mon, Jurassic World is Racist Now?

As if all of its sexism wasn’t bad enough, it appears that Jurassic World may have a racism problem, too.

The National Journal Reported Today by Katherine Timpf:

The controversy: The film features a dinosaur species called Pachycephalosaurus, which at times characters call “pachys,” which sounds too much like “paki,” which is a slur for South Asian people that’s used in Britain.

Many on social media expressed shock at hearing the word — and particularly with hearing the line “The Pachis are out of containment!” once the dinos had escaped.

Oh you have to SEE some of these comments, tweets and social media outbursts! INSANE!
