SeaWorld Fires Back At One Direction's Harry Styles

(Radio.com) At a One Direction show in San Diego on Thursday, Harry Styles asked his audience a fairly rhetorical question, which he answered himself. 'Does anybody like dolphins?" he asked. "Don't go to SeaWorld."

A clip of his quip went viral after Game Of Thrones actress Maisie Williams shared it on Instagram. Billboard spoke to Lincoln O'Barry of the Dolphin Project, who claims that Styles found out about his organization from the 2012 film The Cove, which mentioned SeaWorld.

"We've seen a concert clip of you urging your fans not to visit SeaWorld," they wrote. "We want you to know we love dolphins too. We care for the animals in our parks like we would our own family. We are committed to making sure their lives are enriching and they are continually engaged socially, mentally and physically.

"And, we also care for dolphins in the wild. In fact, SeaWorld has rescued more than 480 whales and dolphins. Right now we are caring for a wild dolphin that we rescued several weeks ago. This animal would have died without our help. Our team is with this animal 24 hours a day, and has walked alongside him and cradled him to help him stay afloat. Our goal with him is the same as with any rescued animal: rehabilitate and return him to the wild." See the clip here.
