Among the smorgasbord of dinosaurs that feature in this summer's biggest blockbuster, Jurassic World, is the little-known Pachycephalosaurus.
It is pronounced (pak-ee-sef-a-low-sor -us), and the lizard-like creature has a habit of escaping its enclosure.
Now, this is a fast-paced action film so there is no time for such lengthy paleontological words, leading a character to at one point abbreviate and shout: "The Pachys are out of containment!"
Phonetically this sounds like a wildly racist slur, and it has left some viewers squirming uncomfortably in their seats:
And they put "the pakis are out of containment" in the script and at no point anyone said hold on— eaux k. (@KSCB92) June 17, 2015

Most can't believe that the line actually made it into the final script, though this can probably be explained by the fact that the slur has a history of only really being used in the UK, and Jurassic World's screenplay was penned entirely by Americans.
I guess it's just as well Chris Pratt pre-apologised by any/all offence caused by the film.
