On Wednesday, “King of All Media” Howard Stern played a news item on his radio show about PETA’s anti-SeaWorld Comic-Con ad. Afterward, he and co-host Robin Quivers had a few choice words for SeaWorld. “It certainly cannot be right to take a whale, a giant whale, and put him in a swimming pool-type existence,” Stern said. “I mean, it sounds horrible. It’s a terrible thing. I am against it. And I support PETA in this.”

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
