San Antonio – “A Beautiful Soul Doesn’t Support SeaWorld Dolphin Abuse!” That’s the message that PETA will send at SeaWorld on Saturday as Jesse McCartney takes the stage.

When:    Saturday, July 17, 6 p.m.

Where:    SeaWorld’s main entrance, 10500 Sea World Dr. (near the intersection of Westover Hills Boulevard and N. Ellison Drive), San Antonio

“Only an ugly soul would endorse SeaWorld’s prisons, where orcas and other dolphins are held captive,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA urges everyone to skip Jesse McCartney’s SeaWorld show—and every other part of this abusement park.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit or follow PETA on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
