Proving that online petitions and social media can truly make a difference, country singer Trisha Yearwood cancels her appearance at SeaWorld’s upcoming music event.
According to TMZ.com’s sources, Yearwood hasn’t actually seen the documentary, “Blackfish” (the impetus for four other bands cancelling the same SeaWorld event), but that all the hullabaloo online – petitions, social media actions, etc. – was enough for her to pull the plug. Good call, Trisha!
Yearwood now makes the 5th act to back away from SeaWorld involvement, with 5 more musical acts remaining on the event’s roster. The remaining 5 (with their corresponding petitions/contact info, to ask them to cancel and not support SeaWorld) are as follows:
Martina McBride – petition / @martinamcbride
Justin Moore – petition / @JustinColeMoore
Scotty McCreery – petition / @ScottyMcCreery
.38 Special – petition
REO Speedwagon – 424-288-2000 @kcreospeedwagon
Who will be the next act to cancel?
