By now, most people know that SeaWorld hurts orcas. These intelligent beings are torn from their families at a young age, confined to small spaces and forced to perform mindless tricks all in the name of entertainment. For #OrcaWeek, we asked Twitter users what they would rather do than go to SeaWorld.
Today is the start of #OrcaWeek! A week dedicated to speaking out for orcas trapped in captivity. RT if you support! pic.twitter.com/C4sLmyVqXz

Some tweets made us LOL (like really, we laughed out loud) and some were just too true. Ireland Baldwin would rather make herself VERY uncomfortable.
shove a cactus plant up my… Nevermind. Have a good day everybody. https://t.co/XNjeii0qfB — Ireland (@irelandbaldwin) July 27, 2015
And Tommy Lee felt the same:
I’d rather stick hot needles in my eyes https://t.co/1HlxU0hNYw

Harry Cook would rather subject himself to great embarrassment.

Stevie Ryan made us LOL!
@peta I’d rather let my dog fart in my face 15 times than go to #SeaWorld

SO true. Almost as real as Kathy Najimy’s tweet:
@peta Id rathr respctfuly hav a convrsation& come 2 a compassionate solution 2 EndAbuse &Suffering w/folks frm @SeaWorld thn 2 go2 @seaworld — kathy najimy (@kathynajimy) July 28, 2015
She TOTALLY gets it.
But it wasn’t just celebs who tweeted what they’d rather do than go to SeaWorld, the Twitterverse was full of creative ideas:
@peta I’d rather sit beside a crying baby on a 5 hr plane ride than go to #seaworld #orcaweek

Still doesn’t sound as bad as SeaWorld.
@peta I’d rather hear nails being scratched repeatedly down a blackboard than go to Seaworld — Jenny Dobbins (@dobbs48) July 29, 2015
We would take nails on a chalkboard over forced captivity ANY DAY.
@peta I rather sit through a whole day of watching paint dry than go to #seaworld #orcaweek — marilyn (@SORRYIMMARILYN) July 27, 2015
Paint drying sounds like a party compared to SeaWorld.
@peta “I’d rather go to school all 12 months of the year than go to #SeaWorld ” #OrcaWeek #AntiCap 💙💙💙

Yup, summer vacation is great and all, but not as good as a life without SeaWorld.
@peta i rather step on a legos than go to seaworld #OrcaWeek #SeaWorld — harry (@hiimyazz) July 27, 2015
Reopening those childhood scars are still better than going to SeaWorld.
And the best tweet of #OrcaWeek:
@peta I’d rather have my freedom taken away, confined to an inadequate space, and forced to entertain the masses than go to sea world…wait

Pretty sure the mic has been dropped. Too true.
Please join these Twitter users and compassionate people everywhere and #BoycottSeaworld. Feel free to tweet us @peta and let us know what you would rather do than go to SeaWorld!
