“Jurassic World” is an epic, visually stunning film that explores themes of animal captivity and the potential consequences of challenging nature. It is also racist and disgusting.
In one scene, a Pachycephalosaurus breaks out of its cage, prompting a character to shout, “The Pachys are out of containment!” which many found to be an insensitive racial slur towards Pakistani people. Several media outlets, including the Independent and the Daily Dot, called it “unintentional racism.”
But they are dead wrong. It was entirely intentional.
Wake up, sheeple. This is the handiwork of a government-controlled Hollywood attempting to subconsciously persuade us against Pakistani immigration.
These people get it:
I am so annoyed searching the pakisaurus thing I'm seeing so many white people laughing about it. It's a racial slur

And they put "the pakis are out of containment" in the script and at no point anyone said hold on

Other ways “Jurassic World” is offensive:
• The vegetarian dinosaurs are portrayed as weak and inferior to the meat eaters.
• The lead female is forced to choose a man and two children over her career.
• Not once does the film entertain the notion of same-sex relations between the dinosaurs.
• The first dinosaur to die is dark-skinned.
For shame, Spielberg..
