Jurassic World is on its way to becoming one of the highest grossing movies of all time. While audiences have loved the film, a dinosaur named Pachycephalosaurus (pronounced ‘pak-ee-sef-a-low-sor -us’) has caused some controversy for Pakistanis. In one of the opening scenes a character shouts, “The Pachys are out of containment”. Believe it or not but it unintentionally sounded like a racist slur and the tweeters spoke up.
Okay so I watched Jurassic World today. Pretty decent movie,other than the fact that it was racist towards Pakistanis Like WTH IS PAKISAURUS

Pakisaurus, imagine a white guy calling you a Paki and just as you're about to go mad he says 'I ain't racist, you look like a dinosaur'

Things got a bit more hysterical when a British Pakistani comedian named Guzzy Bear released a video online with regards to this controversy. You can watch the video below and let us know what you think about the Pakisaurus!
