Canadian rockers Barenaked Ladies announced on their Facebook page today they have cancelled a February concert at Orlando SeaWorld because of the controversy over the documentary “Blackfish” which is critical of the park’s killer whale shows.

“This is a complicated issue, and we don’t claim to understand all of it, but we don’t feel comfortable proceeding with the gig at this time,” the band’s Facebook post read. “The SeaWorld folks have been gracious, and extended us invitations to the park to learn more about what they do, and how they do it.”
