Cher

Award-winning actress and singer Cher took to Twitter recently to express her hatred for SeaWorld, even going so far as to refer to the company’s documented abuse of marine life as “…the first kind of waterboarding.”

In a series of disparaging tweets, the “Goddess of Pop” lashed out at SeaWorld for kidnapping whales and killing their spirits by imprisoning them in “goldfish bowls.” She criticized the marine mammal park for professing altruistic motives, saying it is a company made up of liars and thieves.

Cher went on to say that SeaWorld is a heinous corporation that pretends to care for the animals in its custody, but that it is only motivated by greed. She also referred to SeaWorld trainers as “killers” and said that they were the ones who belonged in captivity.

Looks like SeaWorld has earned itself another passionate enemy.

    I like to work words like “mendacity” and “subjugation” into tweets alongside the misspelling of simpler words that I didn’t bother to look up.
