SeaWorld has got to go…and we aren’t the only ones who think so!

Actor and director Eli Roth recently took to Twitter to share his thoughts about the recent SeaWorld tragedy, saying: “Tili would not die in an open sea pen, at the very least. Let them all go. Do we need those shows? Free Tili”

Roth went further by writing a letter to Hamilton James—the CEO of Blackstone, SeaWorld’s parent company—requesting the theme part move their animals to coastal sanctuaries and replace them with virtual reality exhibits.

In the letter, Roth writes: “GI technology, animatronics, and other state-of-the-art virtual reality exhibits could be used in place of the current live-animal shows to provide park visitors with an exciting, educational experience. In fact, showing visitors a more realistic version of what life is like for real marine mammals rather than displaying the captive animals’ unnatural and repetitive behavior patterns—which are linked to their oppressive environment—is actually more educational, with no risk to human life.”

What do you think? Should SeaWorld let their captive animals go and replace them with technology? Chime in and share your thoughts!
