True Holly Marie Combs boycott SeaWorld Pretty Little Liars' star Holly Marie Combs is joining the campaign to boycott SeaWorld, RumorFix is reporting. In a new video produced by PETA, the actress says, "I couldn't bear the thought of having my children torn away from me. At SeaWorld, this happens time and time again. Orca family members belong together at home in the ocean, not isolated in tiny tanks at SeaWorld. If you believe that a mother should never have to know the pain of having her child torn away from her, boycott SeaWorld." The mother of three is the latest star to slam the amusement park for its confinement of orcas and other marine animals. n the video, Holly claims baby orcas at SeaWorld are often separated from their mothers, breaking a bond that, in nature, can last a lifetime for these sensitive, intelligent animals. Other celebrities asking for a boycott include: Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe, Jessica Biel, Laura Vandervoort, and Steve-O. PETA claims attendance at the parks has dropped 13 percent since the release of the documentary Blackfish, which tells the story of a captive killer whale. The animal rights organization is calling on SeaWorld to fund the creation of coastal sanctuaries where the orcas can live in as natural a setting as possible.
