Yes, Jones seemed like a vehemently extreme animal activist. Except for one thing: All along "Thomas Jones" was allegedly a SeaWorld employee.
"There were a number of red flags relating to this individual. Any genuine animal advocate is not on social media saying things like 'burn SeaWorld to the ground and drain the tanks,'" Lindsay Rajt, spokesperson for PETA, told The Dodo.
On Tuesday, the animal rights organization accused "Jones" of being Paul T. McComb, a human resources employee at SeaWorld San Diego.
SeaWorld did not respond directly to Bloomberg's questions about McComb's employment with the company. And McComb himself hung up on the news organization when it asked about "Thomas Jones."
