Vegan Athlete Lewis Hamilton Urges Fans To Boycott “Horrible” Dolphin Shows
Formula One racer and vegan advocate Lewis Hamilton is encouraging his fans not to support the “horrible things” that are being done to dolphins in the name of entertainment.
Hamilton took to Instagram to first share a video of dolphins at a marine park, and then followed this with another showing wild dolphins being violently captured.
“Please don’t go and support these shows around the world, don’t buy tickets to show your kids,” he wrote on the first post.
“Instead educate them of these horrible things that are happened to the dolphins, whales and other sea life. These beautiful creatures shouldn’t suffer.”
Hamilton, who is currently visiting Japan, reposted these videos from the Dolphin Project to raise awareness of how captive animals are used for entertainment.
