SeaWorld has faced a ton of backlash over the past few years for the way it treats the animals in its park. After trying unsuccessfully to repair its image for some time, the water park has recently changed its approach: SeaWorld has realized that people will be mad at it no matter what it does, so it’s decided to just see how fat it can make a dolphin at its Orlando location before it goes bankrupt.

Looks like SeaWorld figures that if it’s going down, it might as well go down on its own terms. The beleaguered park announced the plans in a Twitter thread early this morning:

Needless to say, SeaWorld’s tweets, along with several photos on the park’s website of park officials feeding an obese dolphin 15 gallons of chocolate pudding received immediate public backlash:

There’s no denying that this is a bold move on SeaWorld’s part. The beleaguered park knows its expiration date is approaching fast, but before it’s forced to shutter its doors forever, it’s fully committed to making this dolphin as heavy as possible. We’ll be keeping an eye on SeaWorld and its gigantic dolphin until the park shuts down!
