Alec Baldwin Urges SeaWorld To End Cruel Dolphin Shows

Alec Baldwin is fighting for the animals.

The “Saturday Night Live” alum has joined forces with PETA to urge SeaWorld executives at the company’s annual online meeting this week to stop using dolphins in their shows.

“When will SeaWorld stop allowing trainers to use dolphins as surfboards, standing on their faces and backs, to perform circus-style shows?” Baldwin will ask during the online meeting on Wednesday.

“It’s unacceptable that smart, sensitive dolphins are being used as surfboards and launch pads in demeaning SeaWorld spectacles,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a statement. “PETA and Mr. Baldwin are demanding that SeaWorld trainers take their feet off these animals’ backs and faces.”

While the meeting takes places virtually, PETA supporters will gather in person outside SeaWorld Orlando with signs demanding, “SeaWorld: Stop Standing on Dolphins’ Faces!”

The news of Baldwin’s involvement comes just a day after Canada banned the captivity of dolphins and whales across the country.

The virtual meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 12 at 10:30 a.m. ET.
