'Blackfish' Creators Challenge SeaWorld to Open Debate

From Ring of Fire:

The director of the SeaWorld exposé, documentary film Blackfish, issued a challenge to the multi-billion dollar corporation. Director Gabriela Cowperthwaite asked SeaWorld to engage in a debate over issues addressed in the film after the company released a statement claiming the film is “propaganda” and untrue.

“As we have always maintained, we welcome an open and honest discussion with SeaWorld,” her statement on The Dodo says. “Unfortunately, Sea World’s business model is built on an antiquated form of animal entertainment which is dwindling in popularity and is no longer seen as humane by many people.”

1. The movie ended any debate with me

SeaWorld and the rest of the so-called aquatic parks are dead to me.

I'll tell anyone who mentions going that they should watch "Blackfish" before leaving.

2. I'd pay to see that.

And if the SeaWorld pimps lose or can't disprove the "propaganda" they have to somehow arrange a better life (either wild or in captivity for those that can't return) for the animals in their care.

Never. Gonna. Happen.
