"Blackfish" is turning out to be an extremely influential documentary. Now, the Canadian band Barenaked Ladies has canceled a concert at SeaWorld in Orlando after viewing the CNN documentary about killer whales.
Although the band had previously announced that they would perform at SeaWorld's "Bands, Brews & BBQ" event in February 2014, the Barenaked Ladies quickly faced a negative reaction from fans. An online petition quickly gained around 10,000 signatures, enough to attract Bnl's attention.
A follow-up notice on Wednesday (Nov. 27) indicated that plans had changed. The band posted a message to Bnl's official website and to Facebook reads:
Hey everybody. We've talked things over, and decided not to play at Seaworld at this time. We watch movies too, ya know! Have you seen Star Trek IV? It's quite good. Kidding ... We sometimes do that.
This is a complicated issue, and we don't claim to understand all of it, but we don't feel »
