Trisha Yearwood

Pulls Out Of SeaWorld Gig

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.

These celebs pulled out only for one reason: their do not want their good name/image damaged by negative attributes. These money-grubbing celebs don't give a f.uck about the animals. If so, they could have asked questions before getting the pay check. But these phony bitches didn't.

LOL like Trisha Yearwood is relavent in any way shape form or fashion, the most interesting thing this 6ft/ 300+ lb chubacca look alike has done is screw Garth while he was married to another women then move in next door lol, she'd do anything at this point to be relavent.

I went to a show a few of years ago: Boring, one of the whales was pulling some girl around by her ponytail so we left.

Can't say I blame them. While I am sure Sea World does some amazing things after watching Blackfish you realize their moneymaker Shamu should be free.

Best work CNN has done in a while - When you see behind the curtain of Seaworld - it's an ugly place. I have seen large bears in former USSR - in cages the size of 2 broom closets, and they sit and rock back & forth with their legs crossed...A whale is much smarter than a bear.
