Jessica Simpson is ready for her third child to arrive, reports Us Weekly. Yet weeks prior to her daughter’s birth the expecting mom in her third trimester was shamed for a trip to SeaWorld.

After a tough pregnancy, some fans questioned why the soon-to-be mother of three would use her platform to promote an organization accused of animal cruelty.

On Monday, Simpson shared pictures of her family making memories at the animal theme park on February 17.

However, many were outraged when the singer posted pictures of her husband, Eric Johnson, and two children, daughter Maxwell, 6, and son Ace, 5, interacting with dolphins at SeaWorld.

Unfollowing. So disappointing to see you supporting Sea World!!!

Another said:

It is so disturbing and disgusting to see that ppl actually still are going to these torture chambers. Is it not common sense that animals belong in the wild? Especially now with the access we have to educate ourselves … my children know what goes on I hide nothing. They need to know so they can help fight it.

One commenter responded to the post by writing:

The fact that you are promoting a place like SeaWorld to 4.5 million people is actually giving me anxiety #emptythetanks.

According to National Geographic, the chain of animal entertainment parks received a fallout after the controversial film “Blackfish,” which premiered five years ago. Since 2013, both celebrities and regular park-goers alike boycotted the parks due to its alleged treatment of its animals.

However, despite the rising backlash over Simpson’s controversial social media post, some fans defended the pregnant mom. One commenter wrote:

Omg people get a life! She’s not promoting anything!!! She took her children to see dolphins like I’m sure All OF YOUR PARENTS DID WHEN YOU WERE CHILDREN TOO! Do you all go to zoos, pet stores, eat meat, use plastic??? Do you keep pets in your homes???? Enough with this BS!!!

Simpson has not commented on the visit to SeaWorld. What do you think about her family trip?

    Zoos & Seaworld protect the animals. If not for them, more animals would be extinct because idiots in the Asian countries like eating them or their parts to get bigger “parts”. Savages.
