The liberty Beat

By: Derrick Broze

A number of musicians scheduled to perform at SeaWorld have cancelled their shows in response to allegations lodged against the amusement park by the recently released documentary film BlackFish. The documentary covers the story of the killer whale Tilikum who killed a trainer while held in captivity and calls into question the practice and effects of animal captivity for entertainment. Artists including Willie Nelson, Barenaked Ladies and Heart have cancelled performances in response to petitions from fans encouraging them to cancel. SeaWorld has stated that the film is inaccurate and misinformed.
