Miami Beach, Fla.Last night at Miami Beach’s STORY Nightclub, EDM superstar Steve Aoki hit the stage wearing a custom PETA T-shirt proclaiming, “Free Lolita“—a plea for the orca who’s trapped at the Miami Seaquarium in the smallest orca tank in the world, with no protection from the sun and no companions of her own species. Photos are available here.

Aoki and PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment”—are calling for Lolita to be moved to a seaside sanctuary that’s waiting for her in her home waters.

More information about Lolita and the Miami Seaquarium is available here.
