Harry Styles vs. SeaWorld? There's a new feud we haven't heard of before. During the recent San Diego One Direction concert, Harry urged fans to avoid SeaWorld – and then the marine/amusement park reached out to invite him to have a look around.

Harry, who works with the Dolphin Project, asked the crowd: "Does anybody here like dolphins?" He followed it up with: "Don't go to SeaWorld!"

The organization PETA, for one, was impressed with Harry's efforts, with PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange commenting, "It's no surprise that Harry Styles knows what young people care about - they love animals, and they hate businesses that hurt them, like SeaWorld's orca prisons do." She added, "PETA hopes that One Direction's devoted fans will join the thousands of people around the world who are calling on SeaWorld to retire the orcas to coastal sanctuaries."

SeaWorld reached out to Harry, tweeting a link to a letter which invited him "behind the scenes." They wrote: "We've seen a concert clip of you urging your fans not to visit SeaWorld. We want you to know we love dolphins too. We care for the animals in our parks like we would our own family. We are committed to making sure their lives are enriching and they are continually engaged socially, mentally and physically. And, we also care for dolphins in the wild."

Can Harry's comments have an impact on SeaWorld business? As we know, the 1D guys are super influential!
