SeaWorld lost another major musical act due to the controversy generated by the documentary “Blackfish”. Acts including The Bare Naked Ladies, Willie Nelson, Cheap Trick, Trisha Yearwood and Trace Adkins have all decided not to perform at the six-week “Bands, Brew & BBQ” events. If I was SeaWorld I would tell these acts to stuff it. I disagree that the park mistreats their animals and I think SeaWorld does a great job.

I guess a $5 bill would have been a much smarter tip!
