The couple that sticks up for orcas together, stays together. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were “appalled” after they watched Blackfish and learned about how SeaWorld hurts orcas. Jessica immediately tweeted her disgust at the abusement park:

And Justin promptly retweeted the message to his 31 million Twitter followers. Then Jessica excitedly shared the news of California’s proposed ban on keeping orcas in captivity:

And SeaWorld is still getting an earful from plenty of other people, too:

  • As Avengers 2 is about to start shooting, the stars are about to start training―to get in top shape for their superhero roles. Fortunately for Scarlett Johansson, it takes her only about three weeks to be catsuit-ready because of eating vegan and working with a trainer. Perhaps ScarJo will be so in love with the way she looks and feels that she’ll want to be cruelty-free and fabulous for life. She’s already a talented vegan baker: “My signature baked good is a vegan banana chocolate chip muffin – I can modestly say I have had marriage proposals from those.”

  • While analyzing the reasons for McDonald’s falling stock on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street, Jim Cramer made an astute observation. “I think that McDonald’s food is being viewed by younger people as simply too much of the old food chain that a lot of people feel is corrupted,” he said. “It just doesn’t seem like they’ve caught up with the times.” As an example, he cited the success of Chipotle’s healthier quick-service offerings: “When you speak with the Chipotle people … what they are saying is there is a [revolution], a coming [revolution]. What is their strongest new offering on the menu? It’s Sofrita. This is a vegetarian dish.”

Montréal Impact defender Jeb Brovsky’s way with words seems to sum it up best:

  • These (wild) animals should be free! All of them, zoos included should be pressured to release the animals that can survive in the wild – rescue and release!!!! I love that people are NOT okay with animals in captivity, for whatever reason! FREEDOM!!!!

  • I’ve had the privilege to be lucky enough to see the Orcas in New Zealand, in the Ocean, where they should be. I’ve also seen the African animals and birds on a photo safari in Africa! Seeing them free with no fences or cages is an experience I’ll NEVER forget!
