The Simpsons co-creator helps Blackfish car afford to get into NASCAR! Welcome to Talladega!

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

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….

Ohhhhhh, barracuda indeed!!

SeaWorld Doesn't Want Its Killer Whale Trainers Federally Protected From A Gruesome Death!!!

Filed under: Legal MattersFootballScary!Sea CreaturesWhalesAnimal CrueltyGIFs

killer whales federal government bars close contact with trainers seaworld objects orcas free wily blackfish death Tilikum

Everyone is entitled to their day in court!!!

Even companies like SeaWorld who oppose current federal regulations that protect trainers from deadly orcas!

Killer whales like Tilikum have been living up to their name for years, but when SeaWorld Orlando trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed on the job in 2010 the government finally decided end the madness.

After an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration concluded working conditions for whale trainers were simply too unsafe, the government barred close contact with these potentially dangerous creatures without some sort of barrier in between.

While this is good news for the friends, family, and children of current trainers who don't want to see their loved ones maimed or killed, it was apparently bad news for SeaWorld stockholders as it cramped the style of the Shamu-esque whale show so many ticket-goers paid to see.
