From Smallville to a SMALL tank!
Actress Laura Vandervoort is being featured in a new PETA ad campaign that’s slamming Sea World for its abuse against their animals!
Laura is seen completely naked, swimming underwater with a sign that reads: Welcome to Sea World!
Below the nude shot is a caption that states:
"Come see Laura as she's confined to a tiny tank and forced to perform tricks for your entertainment! Learn the truth behind the show and Boycott SeaWorld!"
Sea World has been a long-time target of PETA with several other celebrities lending their names in order to speak out against amusement parks that keep whales and wild animals in captivity, including Krysten Ritter, Bob Barker, Tommy Lee, Behati Prinsloo, Joan Jett, Kathy Najimy and Eli Roth.
The former CW star explained why she was willing to take it all off for this cause, saying:
"We wanted to express the confinement and the torture and the agony and the anxiety that the orcas go through in a tank, for them, the size of a tub. I had seen the movie Blackfish and not only did it make me cry … but it impacted me in a way that I wanted to do something, and I wanted to help."
With Sea World on blast from so many celebs now, we wonder how much longer they’ll be able to stay in business!
