Harry Styles Invited To SeaWorld After Telling Fans Not To Visit San Diego Park
Harry Styles is being invited to SeaWorld after dissing the controversial organization. See video below.
At One Direction’s “On The Road Again” concert Thursday in San Diego, where SeaWorld has a theme park, Styles told the crowd of thousands, “Does anybody like dolphins? Don’t go to SeaWorld.” The clip was shared online by fans, and even spread by celebrities. “Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams, for instance, posted the video, writing, “Yo u heard him ladies and gents. Don’t go to sea world.”
Well, SeaWorld heard Styles, too, and they were none too pleased. But rather than slamming the British star, the organization said it wanted to have the chance to clear up what they perceive to be misconceptions about SeaWorld. The official account tweeted, “.@Harry_Styles, if you want to see what SeaWorld is really about, we’re happy to show you and answer your questions.”
Included was a link to an open letter written to Styles, which began, “We’ve seen a concert clip of you urging your fans not to visit SeaWorld. We want you to know we love dolphins too. We care for the animals in our parks like we would our own family. We are committed to making sure their lives are enriching and they are continually engaged socially, mentally and physically. And, we also care for dolphins in the wild.”
The letter went on to tout some of SeaWorld’s accomplishments, and concluded, “We invite you to see for yourself, and then decide based on facts. We are happy to open our doors, take you behind the scenes, and have our trainers and vets answer any questions you have.”
Styles, who is being cheered by PETA for his comment, has not addressed the missive on social media. Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep to see if he will be responding in any way, or taking up SeaWorld on its offer. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
