Brie Larson Apologizes for Dolphin Photo on Instagram

Brie Larson is issuing an apology after sharing a photo on her Instagram account of her petting a dolphin in captivity.

“Yo – it’s me again. I posted a photo previously that encapsulated a silly moment in my weird life. I forgot that through social media and random interviews you do not know all the facets of me and what my concerns are. We should be concerned about the well being of all animals. Yes, Dolphins. Along with every other creature. There are problems with animals in captivity. There are problems with animals living in the wild. It has always been a priority of mine to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. I apologize if the photo appeared to endorse animal cruelty,” the 26-year-old Oscar winning actress wrote in a follow up on Instagram.

“I don’t believe any living thing deserves miss treatment. In the comments section feel free to discuss your thoughts, concerns, articles ANYTHING that can turn this into a moment of education for myself all who are interested. We gotta remember that we will make mistakes but we can learn from them, together. Much love,” Brie added.

    This is why you should avoid social media. People just love to criticise everything that you do.

    Any time a starving mountain lion makes it’s way down from the hills to where humans reside, the authorities take it upon themselves to execute it for merely coming close. In this case the threat of the threatened is death for proximity. This type of chauvenism is why human beings are leading the planet on a path to extinction for ourselves and all the variety of god’s creations. I would like to see cows walking down the streets of New York City on the way to get grass somewhere. Why not?”

    are people seriously criticising her for petting a dolphin 12 years ago…

    Animals in captivity is a serious problem. While I think it’s silly to criticize her personally for a photo taken 12 years ago, I also think it’s good she is now aware of the issue and spoke out about it.

  • kelly

    I think it’s more so to do with the fact that it looks like she was glorifying animals in captivity.

    She was dumb enough to post the photo in social media.

    How does petting a dolphin in captivity mean you’re endorsing animal cruelty? Maybe she was petting it to comfort it. Ok maybe posting it wasn’t such a good idea but it’s not like the picture showed her all happy and showing a thumbs up as if she was happy to see it in captivity. People can seriously be so touchy. And I thought I had problems.
