Target: John Cooper, Lead Singer of Skillet
Goal: Don’t perform at SeaWorld in order to increase attendance.
Due to increased public awareness and documentaries like Blackfish, SeaWorld’s attendance has plummeted. In order to increase numbers, SeaWorld will be hosting another Christian music festival dubbed Praise Wave.
Many singers have canceled their performances with this cruel amusement park including Martina McBride, Willie Nelson and Trace Adkins. Skillet should follow suit and not support a company that steals wild animals from their homes in order to perform tricks in front of large, jeering crowds.
Sign this petition and demand that Skillet cancel its plans with SeaWorld.
Dear Mr. Cooper,
Your band is planning on performing at SeaWorld’s Christian music festival, Praise Wave. SeaWorld is using Praise Wave as a chance to increase attendance since it has been dropping in recent years.
The reason for the drop in attendance is because of increased public awareness of the atrocities that happen behind the scenes at SeaWorld. Wild animals are ripped away from their families and homes to be put into small tanks. Also, they are often used for entertainment and are forced to do tricks in front of large, jeering crowds.
Please consider canceling your plans with SeaWorld. Many singers have already canceled their performances after hearing about the cruelty SeaWorld inflicts including Martina McBride, Willie Nelson and Trace Adkins. Please consider doing the same and not supporting a company that profits off exploiting God’s creatures.
[Your Name Here]
