Bindi Irwin

Handler Whales on Photog

For Asking About SeaWorld

3/8/2014 12:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

030814_bindi_irwin_launch
Bindi Irwin -- the newly-minted spokesperson/tool for SeaWorld ... will gladly talk about Australian mammals, but dare to even dance around the subject of whales and you'll get shut down.

Bindi and her mom were cruising through Rockefeller Plaza in NYC when our photog asked the 15-year-old about her favorite animal.  She was all chatty until our guy switched gears and asked her if she was an animal expert ... and that's all she wrote.

The handler swooped in and shut things down, because it was clearly headed in a "Blackfish" direction.

Shame on SeaWorld ... it's so transparent -- hiding behind a teenager to do their dirty work.

Shame on Sea World? This little chick is no wallflower-She certainly has no problem running around talking about how young African girls should be forced to get Norplant in order to save the environment. Forget that a Norplant doesn't prevent the rape that gets these little girls pregnant, and forget that Bindi has a choice what she puts in her body...no, she is grown enough to talk about sterilizing young women for the Green cause, she can take a few questions about an overgrown dolphin. Don't get me wrong-I hate seeing those Orca in a fish tank, it's absurd, but so is Bindi. Ask the US State Department what they thought of Whackadoodle Irwin when she proposed her cure to population overgrowth. Her and Terry are in their own little elitist worlds, and they'll be fine.

Her father is flipping over in his grave at how bad a decision it is to sell out to Seaworld.
Good to know that young Bindi is only about the money.

Seaworld/MarineLand are animal abusers. It's disgusting to keep these creatures of the sea held like that. Kinda felt guilty yesterday at the zoo I took my kids they had a blast but I couldn't help noticing how sad some were.
