Jurassic World Called "Racist" Over Dinosaur Name

Some viewers of Jurassic World are taking offense to the film, calling one of the lines in the movie "racist." Specifically, the abbreviation of the dinosaur Pachycephalosaurus.

During the course of the film, the Pachycephalosaurus escape from their enclosures, leading one character to shout, "The Pachys are out of containment!" This has led news outlets and Twitter users to call the film "racist."
A British comedian originally brought attention to the line, offering a tongue-in-cheek rant against the dinosaur's name. However, people did not get the joke, and are actually calling the film racist.

The Independent called the line "very racist." The Huffington Post called it "accidental racism." Yahoo News called it "unintentional, but very racist." The Irish Examiner called it "unintentional racism."

Twitter users are calling the film out as well:

  3. Pakistan is not a race. This is insane. It cannot be racist unless there is something racial involved. Pakistani is a nationality not a race. Come on people! Use those brain cells!

  9. Never in all my 70 + years have I seen and heard more morons. First they misspell the word ( its PACHY short for PACHYCEPHALOSAURUS) Then they actually compare a dead species with humans. Those dinosaurs had more brains in their tale then you idiots have in your entire head. I have tried to dumb this rant down due to the extreme lack of intelligence that abounds on these pages. Your time would be better spent getting an education than writing online stupidity. I am so sorry that my intelligent grandchildren must inherit this world...sigh !!

    1. I'm sure it would be, except the filmmakers are American, and like all other English speakers outside the UK would have no reason to know obscure British racist slang.

    It's a tacit admission that the sneering elites who insist in calling it "Pock-ist-ahn," the Great Obama among them, have been mispronouncing it all along.

  16. Pakistani is a nationality. The ethnicity of most of them is "Indo-Iranian." Unless you're a PC liberal, in which case it's just "Asian." Because it's not at all racist to lump them in with Laos, Yakuts, Indians and Koreans.

  18. You know, I think the next Jurassic Park should have actual Pakistanis in containment referred to as Pakis and chased down. Then at least the film would deserve all this race bullocks. How stupid are the Brits to take offense at this?
