Kid Rock And Alan Jackson Step In To Perform At SeaWorld's BBQ After EVERYONE Else Cancels Because Of Blackfish

| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersKid RockAnimal RightsWhalesSea WorldAnimal Cruelty

Blackfish causes artists to ditch SeaWorld BBQ... then Kid Rock stepped up to fill in! Scab!

We were so proud when we heard that Heart, Willie Nelson, REO Speedwagon and other musicians had pulled out of performing at SeaWorld's Bands, Brew & BBQ Festival.

Things seemed pretty dire and we were hoping the whole event would be canceled.

Maybe then they'd start losing real money and eventually SeaWorld would shut down and all the whales would go free!!

However, money must talk because Kid Rock and Alan Jackson have stepped in to headline the event this weekend at SeaWorld Orlando.

We'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt but Blackfish is too popular for them to not have at least heard about the cruelty.

They gotta know the reason why all the other acts dropped out.

We guess some people only care about money??? We're very disappointed.

    You say you're disappointed, but you still post 'happy' scenes of celebs swimming with dolphins, beluga whales in captivity, and other non-domestic animals used for entertainment.

  2. 2

    go to Sea World its full of people.

  3. 3

    And you know if Seaworld wanted to advertise on your sites perez, you would gladly take their money, so don't act so high and mighty. Also the animals in their care would never survive in the wild.

    Re: onefinn – A lot of the animals in their care - or their parents, were surviving in the wild just fine until they were captured and sold.

    I'm sorry, but if a person NEEDS a movie, like Blackfish, to make you realize that giant creatures don't belong in small tanks/cages, then you are a mindless fool. I'm willing to bet that most, if not all, of these performers have been to Sea World or any zoo across America, probably more than once. Now, because a movie says so, it's bad?? If they really felt this way, they wouldn't have signed up to do the show in the first place. The people of this world baffle me. Remember the KONY video? Whatever happened with that? Oh, that's right…people got over it and moved on to the next horrible thing that is right in front of their faces, but took media to let them know exactly how AWFUL it really was….just like people will do with this.

    Re: onefinn – But once in captivity or raised in captivity it would be next to impossible for them to survive if released. And before you go bashing me I am a person who "adopts" a whale annualy through an organization in NovaScotia that studies the whales in the wild there.

    Join Ric O'Barry Save Japan Dolphins and Sea Shepherd to help stop all the damned killings. Watch Blackfish and wonder why we are still capturing and killing these wild animals. Watch The Cove and wonder why we allow the bloody murders in Taiji, Japan.
    Kid Rock,Scotty McCreery,Justin Moore and Alan Jackson are just plain ignorant heartless money grubbers with blood on their hands. The USA is supposed to represent Freedom. Freedom lovers do not support capturing animals in the ocean and keeping them until the die in the tanks. Sea World does not release Whales and Dolphins they use them to make money from ignorant people. Smart caring people do not buy tickets to the slave shows. The animals perform the tricks out of starvation training.

    Kid Rock his new release is named BORN FREE…what a hypocritical statement he is making for Sea World. BORN FREE NOW LIFE IN PRISON

    Re: phoenixlake – AGREE!!
    For KRISSY that feels the need to make herself look intelligent with that remark, THIS ENTIRE WORLD IS NOTHING BUT DISTURBING! BLACKFISH is an eye opener for some that just do not realize what these animals have to endure every day from the training to the extreme physical attacks on each other. Thousands don't know what happens behind the scene and this is giving FULL VIEW.

    Re: shaygirl1309 – Yes, full of mostly uneducated ignorant people.

  11. hatelivingnearSeaWorld says – reply to this


    Who the hell are these losers? Alan Jackson? Justin Moore? Never heard of them. Scotty McCreery? The Americal Idol winner that never should've won? And Kid Rock. Wow! What a pathetic, desperate line-up.

    Re: kabuki girl – That was the point I was trying to make, maybe I said it wrong, is that they would not survive now after years in captivity.

    Re: onefinn – the whole idea is to get them out of jail at Sea World. There are plenty of people working on solutions to get these animals retired and out of Show Business Entertainment Industry. Rest assured they will be well taken care of for their remaining years of a life without being abused. These animals are shocked by noise lights fireworks and starved on a daily basis to get them to perform. They even breed them to family members to have captive offspring perform in their shows. How sick is that? Alan Jackson ,Scotty McCreery,Justin Moore, Kid Rock are helping the bad guys. They are supporting the cruel captivity and animal abusers.Sea World has been doing this to animals for Fifty Years. Empty The Tanks Do Not Buy A Ticket.

    Re: GINA – and people most certainly will move on from it and go back to Sea World, eventually. Sorry, but that's the truth. It's sad that people NEED a movie to make them realize how awful it must be to be taken from your family, shoved into a tank/cage where you are forced to perform several times a day for the same creatures that took you away from your habitat. I'm sure that at least 90% of the people who became outraged, after watching this movie, will be in line for the zoo this summer…..

    Those whales live in a controlled environment where there ever need is fulfilled. Let them go back into the ocean and fend for themselves now would be cruel and unusual punishment. You're stupid to even think being free in the ocean where they would have to search for food and fend off predators is a good thing?

    Re: onefinn – Not so sure. A very long time ago we had a place on the Palos Verdes Peninsula called Marineland. When it closed, Sea World picked up at least two dolphins and at least one died en route to San Diego.

  17. kiki says – reply to this


    First of all, most of the people that boycotted SeaWorld are playing the San Antonio Rodeo. Hypocrite much? Or is it that only marine life is what you all want to protect, who gives a shit about bulls, cows and pigs? Secondly, blackfish is 98% false. I think the only truth to that film is that Dawn died, the rest was fabricated. It would have you believe that dolphins and whales are wild caught. The last time a dolphin or whale was captured in the UNITED STATES was in 1989. The united states does not obtain their marine mammals from the Taii Cove, either. Another falsehood that The Cove would like you to believe. If you don't believe me, check out anything on the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, AMMPA.ORG, the AZA, and the US Fisheries and Wildlife. I'm sure the people of blackfish have no idea what any of these agencies are.

    Re: irvinegirl – Exactly! They already tried with Keiko.

    Eww but it doesn't surprise me.

    Re: onefinn – Orca's live in pods and if their pods can found then they have a capability for release. Even i they can't live in the wild they can live in pins in the ocean that are actually big enough for them. I'm guessing you haven't seen Blackfish, The Cove or read about the dolphins and whales captured.

  21. Jacy says – reply to this


    Boy kid are you an ignoramus. How on earth did you fall for SeWorld's complete fabrication. They have captured a wild orca in the past 5 years. Her name is Morgan. She lives in Spain with other SW whales one of which killed a trainer on Christmas Eve a few months before Dawn's death. They were supposed to be "helping" her as she was lost and a bit ill. Today she has been beaten up by older whales. Her body is full of marks where other whales have raked their teeth over her. They have chewed on her tail to the point where if they keep it up she won't have a tail. She is CONSTANTLY being harassed & I mean every minute she's in with the other whales (she's had to be sequestered.) And this is the story of only one whale. There are many more horror stories. See "The Cove" go onto The Orca Project site. You'll be sick. Take a look at some of the photos. By playing there you are contributing to a nightmare. Dude I used to love your music. I saw you when you played at the Anaheim Stadium but know I've thrown out all your cds.

    Re: onefinn – Here's a thought….let them try!!

  23. Beth says – reply to this


    Oh now you care about animals because it's Alan and Kid? But when it was Nikki and Drake, mistreating animals outside of their natural environment was cool. Now it's not? And WHAT is the difference, here? Hmm….

    Get your opinions together, people. Are you for it, against it? Bandwagon jumpers, it sure seems like! FLIP FLOPPERS AND DISCRIMINATORS!

    Re: misscheriamor – I'm guessing you didn't pass English class. Learn to speak and spell.

    Well this just indicates that you are a little short of cash and HAVE to take ANYTHING that comes your way. It OK, as it is a big loss of income to give this up.
    So great that all the others wonderful performers cancelled, which is SO SO appreciated as they have an enormous voice to their fans, and have gained so many more new ones,who now adore and respect them so much for their sacrifice.
