At this point, it's clear that Jurassic World is a success. The movie has seen both critical and commercial success, and while many claim that it's far from the smartest movie of the summer, Jurassic World has still managed to become one of the season's most entertaining movies.

You'd be forgiven for assuming that all is well with Jurassic World - but according to the Internet, that's far from the truth.

So, what's wrong with Jurassic World? Is it the movie's supposedly dated portrayal of female characters? Is it the over-reliance on CG animation? Is it just a bad popcorn flick? Well, according to the Internet, it's none of those things - the real issue with the film is the shorthand name used for one of dinosaurs. Apparently, the name used for one of the dinosaurs is actually a subtle way for the filmmakers to keep an entire group of the populace in check.

No, this isn't a joke ... or is it?

So, how did these racist accusations actually begin?

During the film, a species of dinosaur known as the Pachycephalosaurus manages to escape from its containment. Obviously, this is a problem for our heroes, and they react accordingly. On its own, the scene is fine, but many have taken issue with the dialogue during the escape - for example, "The pakis are out of containment!" and "The pakis short out their implants when they butt heads!"

Obviously, the characters are referring to the dinosaurs, and not those of a Pakistani heritage - though the Internet doesn't seem to agree.

Now, a few tweets on their own are nothing to worry about - Twitter is basically designed for complaining about anything - but there are also those looking to use the controversy as a way to get their name out. One video in particular, named "Boycott Jurassic World! Say no to Pakisaurus!" is currently sitting at just over 500,000 views:

Normally, this would appear to be an angry fan lashing out at perceived racism - considering the confusion, such a reaction would be perfectly understandable. However, that's not exactly why the video was posted - while there does seem to be some sincerity in the performance, most of the video looks like its designed as some sort of viral marketing campaign for a stand-up comedy act.

Between the bizarre mix of a stand-up comedian's psuedo-protests and the ire of Twitter, is Jurassic World actually in trouble?

The answer is a clear "no." While there's a good chance that the filmmakers may try to avoid using such a word in the future, the current controversy is the vocal minority - you may hear about people complaining more often than anything else, but that doesn't mean they represent the majority of the opinions out there.

Again, people have the right to be offended by something ... but it's probably best to look at the situation rationally before taking to the Internet.

Jurassic World is in theaters now.
