Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee has written to SeaWorld protesting the Orca breeding program.
TMZ procured a letter sent from Lee to the President of SeaWorld, where he rails against the process of acquiring whale sperm: “Even in my wildest days with Motley Crue, I never could've imagined something so sick and twisted.”
We’ve taken the liberty of transcribing the entire letter below, although you’ll miss out on the Papyrus font and Tommy’s overblown signature.
Warning: it gets pretty graphic about how they extract sperm from killer whales.
“Dear Mr. Prather,
“After learning about the bizarre way you breed killer whales, my friends at PETA and I are stumped about SeaWorld’s announcement that no people will ever again have direct contact with Tilikum, the orca who has killed 3 people including his trainer this year.
“We understand that you refuse to release this frustrated whale because he is your chief sperm bank, and we know from SeaWorld’s own director of safety (as well as videos on the web) that the way you get sperm is by having someone get in the pool and masturbate him with a cow’s vagina filled with hot water.
“Even in my wildest days with Motley Crue, I never could've imagined something so sick and twisted.
“Simply put, how can SeaWorld claim that trainers no longer have direct contact with this whale when they are jacking him off? That’s about as ‘direct’ as it gets. I hope it doesn’t take another tragic death at SeaWorld to realize it shouldn’t frustrate these animals by keeping them in tanks.
“Sincerely, Tommy Lee.”
