PETA activists are planning to protest a SeaWorld float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year by painting their naked bodies black and white to look like orcas (“killer whales”) according to a report by Policy Mic. The animal rights group also plans to protest the theme park’s use of animals in captivity by cramming a bunch of naked, painted people into a bathtub set outside Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square.
The stunt is supposed to protest orcas held in captivity and continue their demand that SeaWorld be excluded from the parade. PETA tried to get the park’s float banned last year as well but were similarly denied. Last year they pulled a similar stunt with a man confined in a small tank.
