San Antonio – “Warning: Vanilla Ice Supports Dolphin Sexual Abuse!” That’s the message that PETA will send at SeaWorld on Saturday as Vanilla Ice takes the stage.
When: Saturday, July 10, 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 someone with an ice-cold heart would support SeaWorld, where dolphins are forcibly impregnated and lockdown never ends for the animals imprisoned there,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA is urging everyone to stay away from Vanilla Ice’s show and SeaWorld’s other sorry excuses for entertainment.”
PETA notes that dolphins in nature swim up to 60 miles a day, dive to depths of nearly 1,500 feet, and maintain dynamic relationships within a large social network. But at SeaWorld, 140 dolphins are packed together into just seven small tanks. Females are removed from the water and sometimes drugged so that they can’t fight back while staff shove tubes filled with semen into their uteruses.
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 SeaWorldOfHurt.com or follow PETA on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
