| Filed under: Legal MattersPETAWhalesSea World

The USDA cited SeaWorld for violating the Animal Welfare Act!

Ever since the documentary Blackfish came out, all eyes have been on SeaWorld. And they're judging… hard.

Some of those judging eyes belong to the U.S. government!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture actually cited SeaWorld Orlando for violating the Animal Welfare Act!

SeaWorld On The Media Offensive! Calls Blackfish "Propaganda" & Responds With A Series Of Videos!

| Filed under: Film FlickersWhalesSea World

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!

They've bided their time and gotten their facts straight and provided links and sources to back up everything they say.

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

What's awful is

Kid Rock And Alan Jackson Step In To Perform At SeaWorld's BBQ After EVERYONE Else Cancels Because Of Blackfish

| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersKid RockAnimal RightsWhalesSea WorldAnimal Cruelty

Blackfish causes artists to ditch SeaWorld BBQ... then Kid Rock stepped up to fill in! Scab!

We were so proud when we heard that Heart, Willie Nelson, REO Speedwagon and other musicians had pulled out of performing at SeaWorld's Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival.

Things seemed pretty dire and we were hoping the whole event would be canceled.

Maybe then they'd start losing real money and eventually SeaWorld would shut down and all the whales would go free!!

However, money must talk because Kid Rock and Alan Jackson have stepped in to headline the event this weekend at SeaWorld Orlando.

We'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt but Blackfish is too popular for them to not have at least heard about the cruelty.

They gotta know the reason why all the other acts dropped out.

We guess some people only care about money??? We're very disappointed.

| Filed under: Film FlickersSad SadWhalesSea World

sea world oops

Something smells fishy!

There's been HUGE backlash against SeaWorld after the release of the gruesome Blackfish, documenting the mistreatment of whales throughout their 39-year history….

….so why would 99% of viewers say "no" when asked whether the flick changed their perception of the park??!

After further investigation, The Orlando Business Journal discovered that nearly 54 percent of 328 votes cast on their online poll between December 31 and January 2 actually came from
