Racism might just be a prehistoric concept according to comedian Guzzy Bear, who found out the hard way about a dinosaur named Pachycephalosaurus, while sitting down to watch Jurassic World at his local cinema.
Bear, who was clearly oblivious about the species that hails from North America, was shocked to overhear a woman sitting next to him say the 'Pachys are out of containment' at the start of the film, obviously assuming she was referring to the racial slur and not the dinosaur. Oh dear.
Things went from bad to worse when he caught an elderly man also smirking at the lady's remark.
Guzzy's mild puzzlement soon turned to outrage (naturally) when lo and behold, one of the Jurassic World actors also boldly stated that the 'Pachys are out of containment.' Oh the difference a vowel can make.

Like all good citizens, he waited till the end of the movie to tell the entire theatre that there are no "paki" dinosaurs, at which point his friendly neighbour pulled out a phone to show the comedian that he was well and truly wrong.
Desperate to have the last word Bear took to YouTube tell the world about this 'global conspiracy' mistakenly referencing the Pakisaurus in his rant -- a species that doesn't feature in Jurassic World but is nevertheless, from Western Pakistan.

He has now launched #boycottJurassicWorld and the Twitteratti have obediently followed.
I am so annoyed searching the pakisaurus thing I'm seeing so many white people laughing about it. It's a racial slur— cats & feminism (@nashwakay) June 17, 2015
Okay so I watched Jurassic World today. Pretty decent movie,other than the fact that it was racist towards Pakistanis Like WTH IS PAKISAURUS— Haris (@Harisarr) June 17, 2015
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'— HARIS (@_HarisAli_) June 16, 2015
