Willie Nelson has cancelled an upcoming concert at Florida’s SeaWorld due to criticism from animal rights activists, surrounding the controversial doc Blackfish.
The event was scheduled for next year and it was supposed to be a part of SeaWorld's Bands, Brew & BBQ events.
Officially, he blamed scheduling conflicts, which is true if the schedule conflicts with his moral code! Ha! No, but really, it seems like it's just a growing trend in performers thinking twice before going ahead and performing at a park that keeps animals in captivity.
In fact, interestingly enough, The Barenaked Ladies have also snubbed the event over animal rights issues, saying:
Justin and Selenita's hearts may be open for business again, but just about everything else in the McAllen, Texas is CLOSED because of them!
We already showed you pics of Justin Bieber and his on again, off again, Segway again ladylove Selena Gomez chillaxing deep in the heart of Texas earlier Friday morning, but that was only one phase of their all day outing!
They started off at Don Pepe's Mexican Restaurant and dropped over $150 on breakfast for them and four bodyguards. According to the owner's daughter, the Big Bieberoni ate huevos rancheros while Selena stuck with the chilaquiles!
