Bindi Irwin SeaWorld - You may be wondering if Bindi Irwin has even seen Blackfish after her latest announcement that she is partnering with SeaWorld! The 15 year old is getting a lot of flack for heading saying that she is heading a new campaign for the controversial park aimed at teens. PETA especially have some very harsh words that may upset even some of their supporters but you can see where their frustration is coming from!
So while many stars run away from being involved with the park Bindi is putting her face to it! Honestly I think it’s a bad move and that she has made a bad decision.
MSN reported that Bindi said on Thursday:
“I’m so excited to be carrying on in Dad’s footsteps and making sure that everything he worked so hard for continues for the generations to come.
“That’s why I’m thrilled to be empowering kids. I’m thrilled to be partnered up with SeaWorld. Thrilled to be part of this new project Generation Nature and just encouraging kids to change the world.”
I don’t know what Steve would have said about SeaWorld but this feels all wrong to me! I won’t go as hard on her as PETA though who went after the whole Irwin family saying:
“The Irwin family has been exploiting animals for years, so it comes as no surprise that Bindi has agreed to become SeaWorld’s latest shill.
“But plastering her face on SeaWorld’s website won’t cover up the fact that orcas, dolphins, and other animals are suffering in SeaWorld’s tiny tanks after being ripped from their families. What millions have realized – through PETA’s massive campaign and the hit documentary Blackfish – is that SeaWorld is no place for anyone who truly cares about animals.”
I think maybe the press should give her a break but maybe her fans can help sway her away from this choice.
What do you think?
