In 1993, a myriad of innocent people lost their lives because one man refused to do his job. He was never put on trial for their wrongful deaths, but the internet has condemned him for 22 years. Phil Tippett had one job, ONE JOB, for the movie "Jurassic Park." He was the "Dinosaur Supervisor," but if you've seen the film, dinosaurs were clearly not supervised very well.
Director Colin Trevorrow decided to give Tippett another shot, bringing him on "Jurassic World" as the dinosaur consultant, according to IMDb. If you're one of the millions of people who saw the summer's blockbuster hit, guess who didn't do his job — again?
Most people never get a second chance to redeem themselves and right their wrongs from the past. Tippett was the exception, and he blew it. He blew it BIG time. I'm really not sure how he sleeps at night, knowing families are still grieving for their loved ones who never made it off the island. Their blood is on your hands, Phil. Your. Hands. And what do you have to say for yourself? An apology? Nope. You told us we just "didn't understand." We understand people died, Phil.
When "Jurassic World" came out, knowing you messed up once again, you still did not provide us with an apology for your wrongdoing and ineptitude. You just gave us an excuse. An excuse, Phil.
On Tuesday (Nov. 17), Tippett tried to prove his innocence yet again. Except this time, he actually has a case here. He retweeted Tippett Studio's video.
The video, which was taken in 1992 at the Stan Winston Studio offers the caption, "At last, what you've all been waiting for! Actual footage of @Philtippett (holding camera) Supervising Dinosaurs - See, we told you he wasn't asleep at the wheel!" As much as we want Tippett to be guilty, it looks like he did, in fact, did his job.
A few minutes after sharing the above clip, he retweeted another one, adding some serious sass on Twitter. People died on (what we thought was) your watch, so we had reason to be upset, Phil.
Here's the second video of Tippett actually doing his job.
To be fair, these were the terrified children we were fighting for, Phil. We heard their screams, watched them run frantically in fear for their lives and assumed you were ultimately responsible. We were standing up for our children, defending our own. Due to this new information, however, we sincerely regret our hasty judgment towards you. Please forgive us, Phil.
