Trisha Yearwood is the latest artist to pull out of a scheduled concert date at SeaWorld due to the allegations of orca whale abuse at the park exposed in the documentary, Blackfish . According to TMZ , a source says Trisha pulled out because she'd heard about the documentary but hadn't actually seen the film.

Her rep said in a statement, "In light of recent concerns, Trisha has decided to remove the Feb. 22 date from her upcoming tour plans.”

Willie Nelson is one of the other artists who has canceled a concert at SeaWorld in the past few weeks.
