REO Speedwagon And Martina McBride Are The Latest Acts To Ditch The SeaWorld Show!

Martina McBride cancels SeaWorld performance due to orca cruelty!

Whoa! This is becoming HUGE!!!

You know how famous bands and musicians come together during times of need and will put on a show to benefit those who need it?

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

Ohhhhhh, barracuda indeed!!

Bands performing at Sea World's Bands, Brew & BBQ early next year are dropping like flies as Heart has announced they will also be canceling their scheduled performance!

Heart's official Twitter account made the announcement and wrote:

Willie Nelson Cancels Upcoming SeaWorld Show After Blackfish Controversy!

Filed under: Music MinuteAnimal RightsSea World

willie nelson seaworld cancel show

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:

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.

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!
