Heart cancels Sea World: 'Blackfish' controversy causes Heart to cancel show

Heart cancels their SeaWorld gig amid the "Blackfish" scandal that is totally ruining SeaWorld's reputation. On Dec. 9, CNN reported that Heart is the latest band to pull out of a show following the "Blackfish" documentary -- which questions the care of Orca Whales at SeaWorld.

"Heart has chosen to decline their forthcoming performance at SeaWorld on 2/9/14 due to the controversial documentary film 'Black Fish (sic),'" the band tweeted on Sunday. And Heart isn't the only band that has decided to leave SeaWorld in the dust. However, SeaWorld calls "Blackfish" believers "misinformed" and stands by their company and the way they do things.

Heart cancels SeaWorld just two weeks after a SeaWorld boycott organized by PETA took place. SeaWorld has defended their company and their creed despite tons of backlash and uproar. More and more people -- famous and otherwise -- have been boycotting SeaWorld, believing what was documented on "Blackfish" and hoping that SeaWorld goes out of business.

"While we're disappointed a small group of misinformed individuals was able to deny fans what would have been great concerts at SeaWorld by Heart, Barenaked Ladies and Willie Nelson, we respect the bands' decisions," SeaWorld spokesman Nick Gollattscheck told CNN on Sunday.

Heart cancels their SeaWorld show and others are expected to do the same. Do you think SeaWorld will "tank" because of "Blackfish"?
