Arnold Schwarzenegger's not the first person to implore people not to shoot animals on Facebook this week and he probably won't be the last.
But while your social media feed is full of people demanding #JusticeforHarambe from behind the safety of their keyboards, The Governor made the call after being charged by an elephant whilst on safari in South Africa.
The former Terminator actor and body-builder had been out there hosting the 'Arnold Sports Festival SA 2016'.
He uploaded this video of the 'encounter' to his YouTube channel:
Damn, reminds me of this scene from Jurassic Park.
After the incident Arnold posted on Facebook, saying: "I couldn't have written this safari encounter better if it was a movie. I'm absolutely in awe of these beautiful, strong animals, even though some of us had to change our pants after this.
"We need to stop killing them - take a photo, not a shot. Would you rather be able to experience these creatures or a hunk of ivory? I thought so."
Animal charity, the World Wildlife Fund, say that tens of thousands of elephants are being killed every year for their ivory tusks. Shit.
Austrian-born Schwarzenegger began weight training at the age of 15 and won the Mr. Universe title at age 20. He then became a Hollywood actor, before going on to become the Governor of California.
Which really puts everything I've achieved in my life to shame.
Here's a video of him chillin' back in the 70s...
In it he says bodybuilding's the greatest of all sports. What you reckon about that, lads?
