The Internet Erupts With Outrage Over Bindi Irwin's Partnership With SeaWorld

The 15-year-old daughter of 'The Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin has caused an online storm, announcing a planned partnership with SeaWorld.

Bindi was happy to explain her decision: "I'm so excited to be carrying on in Dad's footsteps and making sure that everything he worked so hard for continues for the generations to come."

The move from the Irwin family has been met with hostility across the internet, with the recent anti-SeaWorld documentary Blackfish still fresh in the public's mind.

Irwin's partnership is based around a new initiative called Generation Nature, "which is all about encouraging kids to get involved and become game changers for wildlife and wild places."

The online community were not as encouraged...

. @BindiIrwin: self proclaimed "Wildlife Warrior" who just turned all real wildlife warriors against her with one $eaWorld contract. Sad.

While there is sure to be further backlash, some have chosen to take the lighter side of Irwin's recent time in the spotlight.
