The Dinosaur Supervisor In "Jurassic Park" Has The Sassiest Response To His Critics

But he's been demoted to a dinosaur consultant for Jurassic World, because of the meme :(

Remember Phil Tippett, the so-called dinosaur supervisor in the original Jurassic Park film?

His credit spawned the meme above, which has made the rounds on the internet for quite a few years now. And of course, there was much expectation that he would once again be a dinosaur supervisor for the new Jurassic World film.

He’s not a dinosaur supervisor anymore. For the new film, he’s credited as a “Dinosaur Consultant" — and he blames his fans for the title change.

Jurassic World

"I need to thank them because they did this ridiculous thing where they blamed me for failing at my job on Jurassic Park as dinosaur supervisor, and too many people got killed," Tippett said in an interview with Here & Now. "So there was a huge ridiculous fanbase… I just want to thank all my fans for getting me demoted from a Jurassic Park supervisor to a Jurassic Park consultant, so it's all your fault."

Here is his name in the closing credits of the film.

Downgraded from 'Dinosaur Supervisor' to just a 'Dinosaur Consultant.' PEOPLE STILL DIED PHIL. LOADS OF PEOPLE.

But he's still defending his role.

to be fair, there were a lot of dinosaurs. it was a large job.

And when a fan tweeted at him about the new film, he said this.

@aryousavvy everything is going according to plan --

But most of all, he's sassy as hell.

@DanJLaw @JurassicQuotes everybody who has a dinosaur named after them raise their hand. anyone? oh, just me? that's right.
