cancel their scheduled performance upcoming at Seaworld.

I just heard that REO Speedwagon is scheduled to perform at SeaWorld in Orlando. As a fan who respects their music and their concern for their fans and their concern for animals, the environment, and other good causes, I find this very disappointing. If you've seen the documentary Blackfish, you know why it's so surprising. Please tell REO Speedwagon you do not want them to support SeaWorld's animal cruelty.
SeaWorld Orlando is where the orca Tilikum is kept. He was caught in the wild about 30 years ago and has since been involved in three human deaths including that of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau right there in Orlando. The orcas at SeaWorld's theme parks (if they cared about animals, they would be non-profit sanctuaries or rehabilitation centers) are kept in tiny tanks where they become stressed, lack proper exercise, and are a risk to other animals and people.
SeaWorld also has also been fighting to import even more wild animals, beluga whales, into the United States, so it can make money off their captivity. And they're fighting to get trainers back into the water for performances even though they've been fined tens of thousands of dollars because it's already been proven to be a huge risk to the workers.
REO Speedwagon is an iconic music group that cares about its fans. Please join me in politely asking REO SpeedWagon to drop plans to perform at SeaWorld. To do so would be promoting cruelty to orcas and other animals.
