Trisha Yearwood

Pulls Out Of SeaWorld Gig

12/12/2013 10:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1211_trisha_yearwood_shamu_getty
Trisha Yearwood is the latest musical act to bail on a big music event at SeaWorld in Orlando -- and we're told it's all over the alleged shocking mistreatment of the park's killer whales.

Trisha follows the exits of Willie Nelson, Barenaked Ladies and Heart, all of whom pulled out because of revelations about whale abuse exposed in the CNN documentary, "Blackfish."

As for why Trisha bailed from February's event -- Bands, Brew and BBQ -- it's a little confusing.  Our Trisha sources say the singer hasn't seen "Blackfish," but she's heard all the fuss and that's enough for her.

And that's enough for us too.

Will someone please ask Willie Nelson why Seaworlds treatment of the animals was fine in 2011 when he played at the same event. Or was he just too off his head to care on that occasion?

TMZ reports this as "allegedly shocking" mistreatment. No TMZ, this IS shocking mistreatment. Hopefully this is the beginning of a larger movement to release these creatures back to the wild where they belong.

She's performing at several casinos in 2014. So I guess that if fans in those areas have gambling problems, they can't go to those shows.

She's doing shows in Florida - where their "Stand Your Ground" laws allowed for the killing of Trayvon (yeah, I know not really, just work with me).

She has recipes in her cookbook for beef and pork products, so it's OK to kill those animals.

I suppose even home-wrecking, adultery-aiding tramps can do good every so often. You're up, LeAnn.

She's an idiot. She didn't even see "Blackfish"? Why doesn't she do her own research before she does a concert for a huge corporation? If she's too lazy to research the huge corporation, she's supporting an abusement park, and there's no excuse for that.
