Anyone who says movies don't have an impact in real life can bite their tongue!
At least this time around!
Not only that, but it would also make SeaWorld provide the majestic animals with far larger sea pens! Hallelujah!
The bill would also make it illegal for
Thanks to The Simpsons' co-creator Sam Simon, Former NASCAR driver Leilani Munter is going to take her Blackfish car racing!
One of the only reasons she's even going to be able to enter her car in Talladega at all is because Sam helped her raise the massive $115,000 entry fee for the race.
Leilani was on Sam's radio show last week, taking about her car and how she's an orca-activist. He was apparently so moved by her that he
One incredible California lawmaker is going to introduce the Orca Welfare and Safety Act and it could change things in a big way forever!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture actually cited SeaWorld Orlando for violating the Animal Welfare Act!
SeaWorld can try and spin the press in their favor all they want, but the fact that they were using
SeaWorld has finally responded to the reputation-shattering documentary Blackfish.
No one wants to see a fair and balanced doc, they want sensationalism! At least that's how SeaWorld feels. They feel abused.
So, they're finally pulling their heads out of the sand, and, they've gone on the media offensive!

Though, we're honestly just left feeling like it's propaganda versus propaganda.
What's awful is
