What Do Jessica Simpson and Whales Have in Common?

Tons! No, we didn’t mean it like that. Jessica knows what it’s like to live in a fishbowl, and although she may not be the brightest bulb in the room, we’re hoping that she might empathize with whales and dolphins who are forced to be on display their entire lives and cancel her upcoming performance at SeaWorld.

Considering her stint on the MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica—and the relentless scrutiny that she’s under 24/7—we think that Jessica might be able to relate to the whales, dolphins, and other miserable animals at SeaWorld whose every move is gawked at and snickered over as if they were on some bad reality TV show. At least, we hope she can.

Read the letter that we sent to Jessica via her papa, Joe, asking her to support the dolphins and to cancel her upcoming show at SeaWorld.

    Hey Stephanie didn’t anybody tell you while you were growing up not to believe everything you read.

  • Jackie says:

    You didn’t mean it like that yet you understand that’s what your title infers. I know you enjoy your “She’s fat and eats meat lol!” Jessica has been dealt enough harsh criticism from the media over not being super skinny. Not everyone can be thin like your lettuce lady models or your pinups for antifur campaigns. Believe it or not there are fat vegans out there. I know you don’t want to hear that cause it ruins your fantasy world that only meat eaters are fat. You go ahead though make your fat jokes continue acting like a horde of horny teenage boys who mock any women who doesn’t measure to your standards. I’m amazed that your only supporters aren’t men with the way you endlessly objectify and mock women.

    If you PETA people would just read the Bible you might be surprised. It tells a lot about how we are supposed to eat certain animals. Some animals WERE put here for human consumption just not the way we’ve been doing it and not as much as some do. Instead of insulting people or saying “DON’T EAT MEAT” you should say something like “EAT ORGANIC AND UNALTERED FOOD ONLY”. It would probably get across to a LOT more people and not make so many people mad. Just a thought.

    I completely disagree with the whole “animals on display”. I am a vegetarian. Have been for almost 10 yrs. and am very proud of myself for doing so good. People like Miss Simpson should grow a conscience before they she completely loses her waistline. Animals were NEVER meant to fill our stomaches. They were here before any of us and will be here long after all humans cease to exist. They deserve respect. They deserve freedom. They deserve to be with their families. And lastly they don’t deserve to be forced into tiny cages and forced to perform stupid acts for stupid people. Get a life assheads. They are not circus clowns. They are beautiful defenseless loving beings with love to give and families to raise. That is all for now.

    i think that she well cancel her show i mean she is not that shallow is she?

  • Carla says:

    She polished off two full “racks” of someones ribs at a Bud BBQ festival this past weekend apparently finishing it off in about 5 mins cause she had to go up on stage to perform and was running late. This is a daily occurrence for Ms. Jessica she probably picked out the pig she was about to eat herself. Shameful!!

    I love PETA! I agree with u 100 however this was a classless posting especially the picture. Please repost at least a different picture. That picture will not help her change her mind. I’m really upset that u would send a message like that especially to young girls with weight issues.

  • Doesn't Matter says:

    Ha! “No you did mean it like that because if you didn’t you wouldn’t of said it at all to begin with.” So go cry about Peta being so mean. What do expect? And Jessica IS getting bigger…it’s obvious she’s probably a “meat and potatoes” girl…maybe not…but many people don’t want to think about if they cut meat out of their diet or at least cut back on it they’d lose weight.

  • Kelly says:

    As if that’s going to happen. She would never cancel.She hates animals.

  • awesome guy says:

    shes a person not an animal theres a difference people are on top of the food chain regular people know this and eat mean

  • Lil says:

    Who cares if that’s what they meant? She is a whale and I’m sure it’s because she’s been gorging on all that meat eggs and cheese she seems to think that “real” girls eat.

  • Kenady says:

    Yeah jessica is like a devil i swear i hate her with a passion dONT count on it cuz she did were a horrible shirt saying “real girls eat meat” shes a loser

  • Lindsey says:

    Gosh she’s such an idiot.

  • Pepsi One is Fun says:

    No you did mean it like that because if you didn’t you wouldn’t of said it at all to begin with.

  • scott says:

    what a mean article. jeez

  • Niki says:

    Could not agree more. Sea World is a terrible place for whales and dolphins. They hardly educate people at all! The animals are there for two reasons alone to make money for SW and to entertain people like circus clowns. The animals are forced to do pathetic unnatural monotonous tricks like “kiss” their trainers and dance or wear little hats. If they have to ‘behave’ like people they should be treated like people and given their freedom back to their families in the wild!!

  • Courtney says:

    Ha! Don’t count on it. This is the girl that went around wearing “Real Girls Eat Meat” Her popularity is low cause she kinda sucks so there’s no way in hell she’d cancel a gig…it’s Chili fest till she busts!
