‘Don’t go to SeaWorld’ Harry Styles tells One Direction concert audience

Popstar Harry Styles has shown his support against whale and dolphin captivity by asking his fans at One Direction’s concert in San Diego last week not to visit SeaWorld. The singer first asked a cheering audience if they liked dolphins before making the comment.

SeaWorld has responded by inviting the singer to go and look round the facilities but in the meantime it seems many of his legions of fans will be avoiding the establishment.

Also in the crowd at the concert was Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams, who posted this video of Harry on her Instagram account and urged people to watch Blackfish, the award-winning documentary about the orca, Tilikum, held in captivity at SeaWorld.
