Former Whale Trainer Says SeaWorld Leading 'Smear Campaign' Against Him

The whale trainer behind a book critical of SeaWorld says his former employer is conducting a "smear campaign" by releasing a 5-year-old video of him using racist terms.

John Hargrove is on a book tour for "Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish." He was featured in the 2013 documentary "Blackfish," which describes the life of killer whale Tilikum, which killed a trainer at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida.
