It is common knowledge that animal lovers detest whenever their furry friends are reduced to being spectacles in a show. Sometimes organizations don’t even treat the animals well enough or give them the proper care and attention that an animal needs to thrive.
SeaWorld does not have a very good reputation when it comes to the way their animals are treated. Sometimes even celebrities join the fight and speak up for the animals that are undergoing questionable treatment.
One such celebrity is Steve-O, who recently took an inflatable whale, climbed a construction crane to protest the organization and was then arrested for his actions. Last year, he was also fined for making a few changes to a freeway sign when he wrote the words “SeaWorld Sucks” on it.
Soon after the incident, people took to Twitter to use the hashtag “#FreeSteveO” as he received many tweets on his account showing him support.
Funny enough, he also posted a clip on his social media with the caption, “Anyone wanna bail me out of jail?” It would seem that the Jackass star has many supporters for his actions against SeaWorld.
