We're Waiting For Comment From Blackstone On Its Serial-Killer Whale

A SeaWorld killer whale named Tilikum freaked audiences out today by attacking its trainer while they were all watching.

Turns out, it’s Tilly’s second offence – at least.

A few years ago, a drunk man climbed into the tank. He was found dead in the morning.

Here’s the thing: Blackstone owns SeaWorld.

It’s time to let the whale go – into the wild or into the skies.

We’ve called Blackstone and are waiting for a comment.
