Anyone with common sense knows that SeaWorld is a dreadful place. It’s a place where majestic, intelligent orcas—who are meant to swim 100 miles a day in the ocean—are imprisoned in tiny tanks where they can only swim in small circles. Ignoring the abuse has become both unpopular and outdated. With help from the widespread success of Blackfish, many celebrities have publicly voiced their opinion against SeaWorld and taken a stand for captive orcas.
Aaron Paul: In the middle of the epic final season of Breaking Bad, the man who brought Jesse Pinkman to life took the time to blast SeaWorld.
Tommy Lee: The rocker had a whale of a problem with SeaWorld.
