Tommy Lee teamed up with PETA to send a letter to marine park SeaWorld, demanding that the company stop playing Mötley Crüe songs during Shamu exhibitions. The Crüe drummer said that loud music is harmful to the whales:
"Although we like to torture the human fans who willingly come to our shows, we don't want to be a part of making innocent animals' lives hellish," Lee wrote.
A rep for SeaWorld released a counter letter claiming that "PETA is wrong concerning the effect of music on SeaWorld's killer whales."
Lee immediately struck back:
"Thanks for the expected lame corporate response which avoids the issue at hand. PETA's SeaWorld campaign and my letter are based on science from the UN wildlife panel and an NRDC study on how loud noises are tortuous to marine mammals, especially captive ones. SeaWorld won't address the issue of noise torture because you can't defend it."
