Pink Pens Letter To SeaWorld Board Of Directors Asking To Release The Animals

Pink is trying to put a stop to animals being kept in captivity at SeaWorld.

The singer, 38, met with the board of directors for SeaWorld on Wednesday on behalf of PETA, reports Rolling Stone.

Following the meeting, Pink submitted a statement asking for the release of the sea animals.

“As a mother, I would never take my kids anywhere that keeps intelligent, sensitive beings in intensive confinement,” she began.

“Children are impressionable, and the last thing I would want to teach my kids is that ‘might makes right’ or that it’s OK to bully and exploit someone just because they look different from us,” Pink continued. “But that’s exactly what SeaWorld does by locking up animals.”

The “What About Us” singer hoped the board would “do right by orcas and other animals and give them up to sanctuaries.”

But SeaWorld responded with their own statement, shutting down PETA’s claims that animals are abused in their parks.

“The company is desperately working to create a false narrative by referring to seaside sanctuaries as ‘sea cages,’” reads the statement from PETA. “These sanctuaries – which have been endorsed by marine-protection organizations – are certainly not ‘cages,’ a term far more appropriate for describing the concrete cells in which SeaWorld currently confines orcas.”

SeaWorld argues that moving them could “pose very real health risks.”

In the past, Jessica Biel, Pamela Anderson and Gillian Anderson have all attended SeaWorld meetings on behalf of PETA.
