    Thousands of negative tweets have been fired off by critics of the company, be they individuals or animal rights organizations.

    Just to name a few...





    Faced with declining ticket sales in the wake of the 2013 documentary Blackfish, SeaWorld launched a social media campaign that it said was designed to “cut through the misinformation” contained in the film and help resurrect its corporate image. Using its Twitter account, the company trotted out the hashtag #AskSeaWorld late last week, soliciting questions from users. What has ensued, however, is exactly the kind of engagement that SeaWorld was hoping to avoid.

    Honest question: Why aren't activists targeting Disney's Animal Kingdom as well? It's right down the road in Orlando, features captive animals for entertainment purposes. Why are they handed a free pass?

    My only complaint is that they are both grossly overpriced relative to what you get. I'll take the Monterey Bay Aquarium any day over crappy ass Sea World, with its concrete bunkers and generally shabby conditions.

    Yeah, asking them questions they can't answer is trolling.
