The bands, Heart and Barenaked Ladies and singer Willie Nelson decided to cancel upcoming shows at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida because of complaints resulting from the documentary 'Blackfish', which questions the effects of keeping whales in captivity. The singer Joan Jett had already sent a letter to the President of SeaWorld, Jim Atchison, asking that her song 'I love rock'n'roll' be removed from the orca show.

A spokesman for the park invited artists to visit SeaWorld and see how the treatment of aquatic mammals is correct and he stressed that the allegations made ​​by "extremist groups" are not true.
