Ricky Gervais: ‘Boycott All Cruel SeaWorld Attractions'
Ricky Gervais wants you to boycott SeaWorld.
The British actor and comedian known for his animal rights activism posted his thoughts on marine parks on Twitter over the weekend, urging his followers to stop attending them.
“Dolphins are magnificent, intelligent beings,” he wrote on Sunday evening. “They should not be imprisoned for our amusement. Boycott all cruel ‘sea world attractions.’”
Gervais’ stance on dolphins was just one of a series of tweets the funny man posted over the weekend in defense of animals.
“Don’t think of conservation as just doing animals a favour,” he wrote on Saturday. “We need them so much more than they need us. We’re saving ourselves really.”
He later posted a picture of a baby rhino that was orphaned by poachers and now has found a friend with the hashtag “#BeNiceToAnimals” and he started his Monday advocating for endangered tigers, asking people to donate to save them.
In between all of that activism, Gervais also posted a few videos of his own cat, Ollie, clearly showing that his love for animals extends to his home life.

All of that doesn’t even count the actor’s “multi million dollar Emmy campaign” which consists of dogs holding up signs that read “#VoteDerek.”
Just when we thought we couldn’t love him more…
