Tommy Lee: Stop SeaWorld’s Jerk-Offs

Written by PETA | December 7, 2010

Caring folks continue to plead for basic compassion at SeaWorld and call on officials to enforce anti-cruelty laws. But Tilikum, the orca who has killed three people, is still confined to a cramped, claustrophobic tank that’s barely bigger than the size of his body to prevent him from having any physical contact with the trainers—except when they masturbate him.

Rock and roll’s bad boy and PETA friend, Tommy Lee, who’s been known to raise a few eyebrows, was blown away to learn about SeaWorld’s perverted treatment of Tilly—and expresses his disgust in this letter to officials:

Terry W. Prather
President, SeaWorld

Dear Mr. Prather,

After learning about the bizarre way you breed killer whales, my friends at PETA and I are stumped about SeaWorld’s announcement that no people will ever again have direct contact with Tilikum, the orca who has killed 3 people including his trainer this year. We understand that you refuse to release this frustrated whale because he is your chief sperm bank, and we know from SeaWorld’s own director of safety (as well as videos on the web) that the way you get his sperm is by having someone get into the pool and masturbate him with a cow’s vagina filled with hot water. Even during my wildest days with Motley Crue, I never could’ve imagined something so sick and twisted. Simply put, how can SeaWorld claim that trainers no longer have direct contact with this whale when they are jacking him off? That is about as ”direct” as it gets. I hope it doesn’t take another tragic death for SeaWorld to realize it shouldn’t frustrate these smart animals by keeping them in tanks.

Sincerely,
Tommy Lee 

It’s perfect-Lee put, wouldn’t you say? Please back Tommy up—and speak out for Tilly— by writing to SeaWorld too.

    To the people who think these orcas cant be put back in the ocean ok i can see you saying that about the ones breed into captivity but the ones taken from the ocean know how to survive if sea world can take them out of the ocean and transport them all around the world they can put them back how would you like to live like a prisoner. Plus SEA WORLD COULD BUILD A BIGGER POOL FOR THE ORCAS they have the money for it in just 3 months sea world makes $181 million. so sea world has all the resources to treat all there animals better there

    STOP PUTTING WHALES AND DOLPHINS IN CAPTIVITY! Then we would’d have this problem

  • Jessica says:

    I find it funny how everyone says to let the whale go.That would be almost as cruel as keeping it in a tank.Does anyone remember Keiko the whale? He was captured in the wild and raised in captivity and then released back into the wild.He died lonely and sick because all he knew was human companionship.He also had to be taught how to find food.The immunity to foriegn bacteria that these captive whales don’t have should be considered as well.These animals shouldn’t be captured from the wild and captive breeding needs to be stopped, but releasing captive whales into the wild would almost be the equivalent to taking a dog that you have had your whole life and then dropping it off in the middle of nowhere and expecting it to survive.It is cruel and it does nothing but make the people feel better and is not necessarily the beast thing for the whale. These animals shouldn’t be in tanks, especially ones that are this small but where are they supposed to put him? It’s not like there are a huge amount of gigantic whale tanks waiting around. I think the fact that they are continuing to plan on breeding whales in captivity is stupid.It needs to stop.But seriously, people need to think about what would be best for the whale and it sure is not the wild.I am a marine biology major and i love these animals but people need to realize that you can’t just release him.

      I think they mean release as in from sea world to a sanctuary because obviously he would die in the wild.
      I have never enjoyed seeing magnificent animals behind bars…….How can you? They have no spark in their eyes, their souls destroyed.
      Greedy humans will soon destroy all the wild creatures on earth and their habitats so future generations will only see animals behind bars or stuffed ones behind glass. Sooooooo sad and disturbing!!!!!!!

  • Eileen115 says:

    What is wrong with these people????????????????????? Unreal

  • Helen says:

    How would they let this animal go? Its obviously extreamly dangerous. Its used to humans, therefore likely to approach them, and would present an extreame potential threat to harm another person. It would also lack the survival skills that natural born whales posess, which would make it very hard for the whale to survive without human assistance. Honestly, think before you speak, releasing this animal is compleatly illogical.

  • xyiencesucksdotcom says:

    Well, at least now we know how that whale got his name: Stroke my junk: Till(I)Kum

  • Laura Kennan says:

    Well after reading this I don’t think my family and I will be going to seaworld in Feb! I really hope this isn’t true if it is then seaworld have shocked me and really upset me!

  • Stef says:

    Well I guess it’s “FREE TILLY”. If only Seaworld had glass walls so everyone can see the barbaric way you treat animals…you need to be put out of business!

  • Tony says:

    this masturbation of animals happens all over the place not just sea world. they do it in animals that are endanger due to low numbers from being hunted and oh wait Humans moving into their natural live space. so all the animal lovers need to think about that as well. I love animals just as much as the next PETA member. but humans need to think about what they are doing when that are building the next sub-division to move hordes of humans in to and that next mall so you can buy all your animal friendly products. it makes me sick to hear people out there protesting things like this, yet they forget about their on impact on what they are doing when building their homes, shopping, and entertainment places. I have said enough to upset the lot of you all. have a good day.

  • Caddie says:

    Wtf? Is Sea World sickly unhinged?!?! Thanks Tommy for your letter!!

  • diamante says:

    It’s very sad, and pathetic that there aren’t laws on the books to protect these beautiful and amazing creatures from this abuse. This shows that “Animals for Entertainment” is dreadfully wrong. SeaWorld needs to close it’s doors for good, and stop using animals for financial gain!!

  • laurie says:

    i remember seeing tillicum in Victoria BC in the late 70′s. He drowned a trainer there who didn’t know how to swim who go into his very small pool. the pool was really a net in the harbor where tillicum could hear is family passing by. He is Seaworld’s only biological orca sperm bank. I don’t think they have had any male orcas able to have viable sperm, but I’m not sure. I agree that he should not be kept for that purpose, as Lolita is kept in Florida for the purpose of making money. She too was captured off the coast of Washington and British Columbia.

  • William says:

    I guess this gives a whole new meaning to “there he blows!”

  • Gabby says:

    WOW! I had no idea this was going on.This is horrible!!I am so disgusted. I can’t beleive this is going on!!! Thanks for making the public aware of this.

  • claire says:

    I love Tommy Lee. My god sea world are sexually abusing whales how fucking low can you get!. Bastards.

  • Miss Meli baby says:

    Wow this is animal cruelty at its finest. i say we put this to an end and hold protest at Sea world and bring this to the attention of all the vistors at the park. you goo Tommy!!!

  • Laura says:

    Wow, i have never heard such a disgusting thing in my life. What is wrong with you people? let tillicum go and leave him alone. You have done enough to this poor killer whale that he has killed people. Smarten up and let him go free. You people are selfish and I will never recomend anyone to go to sea world.

  • JULIA O says:

    THANK YOU TOMMY FOR WRITTING YOUR LETTER..I HOPE ALL WILL FOLLOW-UP IN WRITTING THEIRS..YOU’R THE GREATEST <3

  • ericka Pugh says:

    Really? This is disturbing to say the least. Put this animal in the wild and let it fend for itself. You have ruined to many animals for ur almighty dollar. I am so happy you are no longer in Ohio. Sea World has become a sick company to which I would never be caught dead walking my children into. I will continue to speak out about your treatment and boycott your company until your company decides to stop tormenting innocent animals. No wonder your animals go crazy. Just like the people who run it!

  • Mary Ellen says:

    What is wrong with these people! Anyone who works there or who visit’s are just as sick!

  • judi says:

    this is beyond words!! i can say for sure that i will NEVER visit a sea world park again….EVER!!! the bottom line is money. lets put this animal in a humane tank and not force him to reproduce!!!

  • Sam says:

    that is disgusting…

  • BloodiaFilth says:

    GO Tommy!! It’s absolutely wonderful to see celebrities who care about animals!!

  • Brian Marselli says:

    you must have a financial gain by keeping this whale, in my eyes you are a stationary circus and no matter how nice you think you treat these animals its cruel. If you think for one moment that this whale wants to stay at your facility why dont you try to let it go, if it stays with you then I stand to be corrected on my statements. You have no right to capitalize off of any animal. Wake up!

  • Gala says:

    What kind of person would do something like this? This is just appaling that so-called friends of animals would mistreat an animal so badly, and then expect it to cater to their wims all willy nilly like
