Steve Irwin's Daughter Bindi Gets TONS Of Backlash For Teaming Up With SeaWorld! See What PETA Had To Say HERE!
Well that didn't take long at all!
We have to admit, we were a bit puzzled by the move considering all of the negative attention surrounding the theme park lately, but some people were downright OUTRAGED by it and took to Twitter to share their frustration:
@BindiIrwin Your partnering with Sea World is not okay. Watch Blackfish and rethink your decision.

Bindi Irwin working with Seaworld? Disappointed doesnt cover it.

These angry tweeters weren't the only ones who were upset with Bindi's move, as PETA also released a statement on her decision:
"The Irwin family has been exploiting animals for years, so it comes as no surprise that Bindi has agreed to become SeaWorld’s latest shill. But plastering her face on SeaWorld’s website won’t cover up the fact that orcas, dolphins, and other animals are suffering in SeaWorld’s tiny tanks after being ripped from their families. What millions have realized—through PETA’s massive campaign and the hit documentary Blackfish—is that SeaWorld is no place for anyone who truly cares about animals. Bindi’s talk-show appearances are just a flimsy last-ditch effort by an abusement park hoping to make a buck."
Yikes! That's pretty harsh!!
While we're not sure we would go to the same lengths PETA has here, we definitely think it's a risky move for Bindi to be joining up with SeaWorld amidst all this controversy!
