PETA — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — is infamous for its many publicity stunts on behalf of animal rights. Lately the group has SeaWord in its sights, and to bring attention to its claim that #SeaWorldSucks, protesters dressed as killer whales bravely “took over” the baggage claim conveyor belt at San Diego International Airport until removed by security.
PETA posted video of the stunt to its Twitter account, showing how their display apparently attracted no attention whatsoever. Note how authorities simply lift the protesters off of the baggage claim and gingerly set them down on the floor. Dress like a killer whale and wave your stupid sign all you want, just don’t play on the machinery, OK kids?
