Whoa! This Is HUGE! California Lawmaker To Propose Ban On Orcas In Captivity! SeaWorld's Worst Nightmare Could Be Coming True!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikAnimal RightsWhalesSea WorldAmazing

A California lawmaker has proposed that captive orcas that are forced to perform be set free!!

One incredible California lawmaker is going to introduce the Orca Welfare and Safety Act and it could change things in a big way forever!

State Assemblymember Richard Bloom, D–Santa Monica, is trying to make it illegal to "hold in captivity, or use, a wild-caught or captive-bred orca for performance or entertainment purposes."

The ban wouldn't only make it illegal to hold them captive for entertainment, it would also ban artificial insemination of captive killer whales and block the import of more orcas or orca semen.

California would basically become a safe haven for killer whales.

What would happen if someone were to violate the ban?

They would face a fine of up to

justin bieber entourage arrested for theft

On the upside, at least we can report Justin Bieber wasn't the one arrested — AGAIN!

But while he avoided the sparkling silver cuffs this time around, people in his entourage were not so lucky.

It seems that while in Atlanta at a fun house, Biebsy's bodyguard and driver got mixed up in a little illegal trouble. As it turns out, this fun house wasn't so fun for his boys who decided it would be a good idea to STEAL!

The bodyguard and driver had exited the amusement park where they encountered a paparazzo. They told the paparazzo to stay cool because Bieberoni would soon be making his grand exit. And yes, we know…how can you stay cool around Bieberoni?!

Well, apparently someone didn't stay cool because the photog and the guard got into it which led to the bodyguard grabbing

Delta Air Lines' Ignorant Breastfeeding Policy Explodes Twitter!

Delta screwed up royally with a dumb breastfeeding policy comment on Twitter and everybody came down on them at the same time!

If you know anything about social media and the current climate of the whole breastfeeding in public debate, you should know one thing:

Women should be allowed to breastfeed in public. (Because it's totally legal.)

Even if you disagree or are weirded out by beautiful boobies, don't voice your opinion publicly without expecting TONS of backlash.

Lindsay Jaynes, using the Twitter handle @ClassicHippie, tweeted to @DeltaAssist asking about the airline's breastfeeding policy.

She has a 10-week-old son who needs to eat every two hours and won't feed from a bottle or breastfeed under a cover. So she didn't have much of an option when she booked her 6-hour-long Delta flight.

When she asked if she was able to breastfeed on the flight she was told no, she couldn't. Even though that's super illegal.

So the conversation continued:

Snooki's Fragrance Lawsuit Called "Baseless!" Was Her Big Legal Stink All For Nothing??

Filed under: Legal MattersSnookiFragranz!GIFs

Excell Brands made a blatant rip off of Snooki's fragrance and have no problem admitting it, but they\'re asking the judge to throw out Snooki\'s lawsuit based on their claims that the rip is legal!

As we reported over the summer, Snooki thinks Excell Brands totally ripped off her fragrance!

After the Jersey Shore star released her own eponymous scent, Excell began selling a similarly packaged product called Snazzy that was even marketed with the line: "our version of Snooki by Nicole Polizzi."

Yup, they included her real name and everything!!

But in December, Excell filed a brief asking the judge to throw out the case, since they claim the lawsuit is “baseless”.

According to the brand:

Prince William & Prince Charles On Their Way To Protect Animals! Royal Father & Son Make A Trip To Highlight Illegal Wildlife Trade!

Princes William and Charles wanna help stop the illegal wildlife trade!!

Prince William and his father Prince Charles are going to be pretty busy mid-February.

They're going to spend all their time between February 9th and 13th trying to help out animals by highlighting the illegal wildlife trade.

First, they'll head to the United for Wildlife Symposium at the Zoological Society London, then they'll head to a reception at the Natural History Museum. It's an event hosted by the U.K. government for the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade.

After that, they'll be attending the actual conference where the Duke of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales are really on top of their animal conservation game! They've got one hell of a busy week!

And a lot of it has to do with Princess Diana's legacy.

She instilled in them a love of animals, which Prince William plans to pass on to his son Prince George… in the form of a jungle-themed room!

So cute! Way to help the animals, you two!!
