Writes the "Awesome Ocean" editorial staff -- one of which is a verified SeaWorld staffer:
There is a theorem that says that if you give a monkey (or any animal) an infinite amount of time banging away on a keyboard, eventually the monkey will produce a work of Shakespeare. Or something like that.
SeaWorld is truly grasping at straws with this one -- the story notes that ‘even The Donald once called her a "lonely loser,'" a point that is entirely moot, given the context. This isn't about Donald Trump (a man whose son was happily photographed trophy hunting), this is about marine mammals in captivity. Period.
The website, "Awesome Ocean," is at least partially funded by SeaWorld, as the company freely acknowledged in an email to its supporters. Undoubtedly, attacking Cher and the website in general, will prove to be just another tone-deaf PR blunder made by a desperate and flailing SeaWorld.
SeaWorld and marine parks profit off keeping orcas and other marine animals in captivity -- despite evidence that captivity not only induces unnatural behaviors in whales, but also endangers trainers. Join us in pledging never to visit SeaWorld or other marine parks until they empty their orca tanks.
