Harry Styles Disses SeaWorld At 1D Gig And They Fight Back!
Never mess with Hazza when it comes to dolphins, okay?!
Addressing the crowd, the curly-haired heartthrob asked: “Does anybody like dolphins?”, before quickly adding: “Don’t go to SeaWorld.”
Hazza was later praised by the Dolphin Project and PETA for his actions, with the latter stating on its website that the 21-year old will be receiving a ‘SeaWorld Kills’ T-shirt and some dolphin-shaped vegan chocolates as a gift.
However, not everyone was thrilled by the ‘Night Changes’ singer’s statement, with SeaWorld later responding to Harry in a public letter.

It read: “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.”
They continued: “In fact, SeaWorld has rescued more than 480 whales and dolphins. Right now we are caring for a wild dolphin that we rescued several weeks ago. This animal would have died without our help.
“Our team is with this animal 24 hours a day, and has walked alongside him and cradled him to help him stay afloat. Our goal with him is the same as with any rescued animal: rehabilitate and return him to the wild.”
SeaWorld ended the letter by inviting Styles to see their good work, concluding: “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."
Harry is yet to respond to their invitation.
Who reckons Styles will be adding a dolphin tattoo to his collection soon?
