San Diego’s airport will need to make sure it hasn’t allowed advocacy advertisements in the past. If it has, it may want to deal with SeaWorld, even though it’s loathe to do so.
PETA says the airport’s advertising vendor chose not to accept $17,500 for the ad featuring actress and San Diego native Kathy Najimy.
In the ad, Najimy, who appears in HBO’s “Veep,” says, “If you love animals like I do, please avoid SeaWorld.”
PETA says the airport has accepted ads from other nonprofits, and from SeaWorld.
SeaWorld and the airport declined comment to U-T San Diego on Tuesday.
SeaWorld has come under fire in the last year since the release of the documentary “Blackfish,” which focused opposition to killer whale captivity.
