PETA Wants SeaWorld Out of 'Anchorman 2'

“Blackfish,” the eye-opening documentary about orcas in captivity that slams SeaWorld, has left an impression on everyone from celebrities to creators at Pixar. Riding on this wave of awareness, PETA is hoping to influence the producers of “Anchorman 2” to cut the SeaWorld scenes from their movie.

“The constant deprivation that marine mammals face at SeaWorld is suited to a horror film, not a comedy,” said PETA’s Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Delcianna Winders. “The makers of Finding Dory changed its ending after learning how cruel SeaWorld is, and PETA is calling on the creators of Anchorman to do the same – and leave all SeaWorld scenes on the cutting-room floor, where they belong.”

In the “Anchorman” sequel, the pompous Ron Burgundy (played by Will Ferrell) loses his news anchor job and finds himself working as an announcer at SeaWorld. (Dolphins are shown briefly in the film’s trailer.) The film is scheduled for a December 20th release.

Will the producers for “Anchorman 2” follow Pixar’s compassionate lead? It will be exciting to watch the continued influence of “Blackfish” on society and pop culture. Who or what will be next?

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
