Martina McBride cancels SeaWorld performance due to orca cruelty!

Whoa! This is becoming HUGE!!!

Well it looks like the opposite is also true!

Ever since the documentary Blackfish came out, word has been spreading about SeaWorld's cruelty towards it's orca whales.

The park was due to have a huge Bands, Brews & BBQ festival with ten seriously famous musical acts.

But, ever since Willie Nelson dropped out, a chain reaction began and artists started dropping like secret Beyonce albums.

Heart and Trisha Yearwood followed suit, dropping out of the show as the dominoes kept falling.

Now, REO Speedwagon and Martina McBride have gracefully opted out, making them the

Here's taking a stand!

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:

Blackfish Says SeaWorld Has Been Lying To You!!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSad SadWhalesSea World

The new documentary Blackfish is all about exposing the cruelty that really goes on at places like SeaWorld.

They think there is nothing crueler than imprisoning an animal, who should have full run of the oceans, in a small aquarium.

The animals are literally said to be driven insane by being locked up!!

The doc really debunks a lot of the "facts" that SeaWorld has been telling people.

Apparently, whales don't live longer in captivity and the stats about dorsal fin collapse are even falsified!

They've been lying to us all for YEARS!!

Check out the clip from Blackfish (above) to learn exactly what lies you've been fed!

Isla Fisher

Isla Fisher was recently snapped while visiting Sea World San Diego's Wild Arctic attraction.

She was so lucky to be able to go into the animals' enclosure and meet a real, live whale buddy!

The whale is over a ton and solid white. Super adorbz!!

Not only did she get to get up close to the cutie, she got to pet him and he liked her so much he gave her a kiss!!

We're pretty sure a kiss from a whale means like ten years of good luck or something.

Such a cute pic! You two are adobzable together!

Stranded Sea Lion Pup Hops In Man's Car!

| Filed under: Cuteness!RescueSea WorldCrazzzzySea Lion

There are so many good Samaritans out there!

Just like a man in San Diego who stopped to help a lost little doggy on the side of the road.

When he pulled over and opened his back door for the little guy to hop in, he realized it was a cute lil sea lion pup!!

After it messed around in his backseat for a while, he called SeaWorld.

The 8-month-old pup was taken to SeaWorld where it was treated for dehydration.

So glad that this man stopped to help out the poor little guy!

Check out the video (above) to see the little cutie hopping around the backseat.
