PETA Crashes SeaWorld’s Pinterest Party

Written by Michelle Kretzer | March 15, 2012

Popular social-networking site Pinterest is great for sharing fashion tips, cool pictures, and recipes—and for calling out a business that abuses animals. When we saw that SeaWorld had started a Pinterest page, we knew we could use it to orcas’ advantage.

Wonder what colorful words SeaWorld execs uttered when they saw this:

Anyone who went to SeaWorld’s Pinterest page saw animal advocates’ calls to release orca Tilikum and the other prisoners to a marine sanctuary.

While our Pinterest protest was a little good clean fun at SeaWorld’s expense, we hope the execs are starting to see that no amount of their online hype will keep SeaWorld’s cruelty covered up.

Help free Tilly!

    Hey, Marianna, instead of wasting YOUR time complaining that you don’t like some else’s form of activism, do something helpful for animals. Or pass on a hint as to what you think could work better. In my experience PETA’s hugely savvy but they also are always saying everything helps and do whatever you can, just DO.

    Oh, how I HATE you SeaWorld.. @Marianna, how much would it cost to sing up for an account and protest a FREE SITE? ESPECIALLY with the copious amount of volunteers that PETA has? I’m guessing this cost PETA not a dime. Hell- if I knew this was going on I would have participated, for FREE of course. The article clearly states “Anyone who went to SeaWorld’s Pinterest page saw animal advocates’ calls to release orca Tilikum and the other prisoners to a marine sanctuary.” *ADVOCATES* which are people who care about the safety, rights and welfare of the animals, not the almighty dollar!

    Marianna, Relax. It probably took two minutes.

    Was it a worthless waste of time if it got one person thinking about how cruel orca shows are? Imagine how many people DON’T realize the torment and torture these animals go through their entire life and just think of them as an entertaining act! I don’t think it was a waste of time at all. Part of spreading the message is to get people thinking and hopefully this Pintrest board accomplished just that.

    Well that was a waste of time and resources – they took it down without hours. Wonder how much money and effort was spent on something so STUPID that could have been better utilized to actually SAVE animals in danger. Worthless.
