Animals are kept in captivity for a lot of purposes, and one of them is for entertainment. However, they are not kept under the best of conditions and the documentary puts light on that matter.

Despite claims from the company that Tilikum was kept under the best of conditions, a lot of people were extremely upset with the company.

People believe that SeaWorld did not take care of Tilikum in the right way.

Joel Manby, the president of SeaWorld, said: 

“Tilikum had, and will continue to have, a special place in the hearts of the SeaWorld family, as well as the millions of people all over the world that he inspired.”

“My heart goes out to our team who cared for him like family.”
