Rocker Tommy Lee demands SeaWorld stop masturbating killer whales

Former Motley Crue drummer and Pamela Anderson sex-tape participant Tommy Lee has written to Florida marine theme park SeaWorld to complain of the park's whale masturbation policy.

PETA member Lee's irate letter was published on gossip site TMZ.com today. In it, the animal rights activist claims that one of the park's whales, Tilikum was being kept in a tiny tank and was being treated as SeaWorld's "chief sperm bank".

Lee also said that his wild antics during the 1980s with Motley Crue were not a patch on the antics of the theme park, stating: "Even in my wildest days with Motley Crue I never could've imagined something so sick and twisted."

The rocker's chief gripe with SeaWorld was in how the park extracts semen from it's whales. "We know from SeaWorld's own director of safety (as well as videos on the web) that the way you get his sperm is by having someone get into the pool and masturbate him with a cow's vagina filled with hot water," he wrote.

A representative for SeaWorld has shot back this morning, stating: "If Mr. Lee’s information on Tilikum and SeaWorld’s artificial insemination program for killer whales comes from PETA we’re not surprised that it’s wrong. PETA is as careless with facts as they are extreme in their views."
