The actress filmed a commercial for the park as a child, but speaks out ahead of Boycott SeaWorld Day.

Bella Thorne has some words for SeaWorld. As the star of PETA's new ad for Tuesday's Boycott SeaWorld Day, the Famous in Love actress sat down and explained, “When I was a little girl, I did a commercial for SeaWorld, and even then, I knew there wasn’t something right.”

The "Break the Chains: Boycott SeaWorld" ad features Thorne as a half-human, half-orca, chained on her tail and wrists. In a behind-the-scenes video, Bella told the camera "F--- the people that are always abusing animals!" She has plenty more shade to throw at the park, including hand-drawing a bleeding whale, captioned "Help me." 

Thorne encouraged viewers to take part in the boycott, saying, "Don't be afraid to show up with your signs and make your point."
