I am incredibly disappointed that you have agreed to perform at SeaWorld this weekend. Please cancel the show!I have been a fan of yours for about 15 years, and I have to say that it stops here if you follow through with your performance.
I would think that Pamela Anderson would have taught you about animal abuse, or by now that you would take into consideration that some musical greats such as Willie Nelson and Heart have said NO to SeaWorld and spoken out about the abuse. Matt Sorum has reached out to you as well. Matt has witnessed the dolphin drives in Taiji that fuel this industry. He has seen the killing of those “unwanted”.
The animals at SeaWorld are forced to perform for food. They chew on the concrete pools and metal gates, wearing down their teeth when bored between shows. The “superior dental care” offered by SeaWorld is to drill the pulp out of their teeth WITHOUT anesthesia! They breed the females far too early, often causing miscarriages and stillbirths. Sometimes the mothers reject their calves because they are so young they don’t know ho w to care for them. SeaWorld offers no real education for us to appreciate these animals in the wild.
By playing there, you are showing the world that this is ok, when it is clearly not! It’s time to take a stand and end the captive circus at SeaWorld. There are many other venues in the Orlando area where you would be welcome. Enjoy the Superbowl and stay home Superbowl Sunday!
There's still time to join Willie Nelson, Heart, Martina McBride, and so many others and do the right thing.
