■ It’s hard to imagine someone wanting to display baby elephants and white tigers at their wedding, but alas, this is Mariah Carey… where the unimaginable is possible. Her wedding to businessman James Packer is said to be circus-themed and also feature fireworks, a marching band, military aircraft and carnival rides and… a statue of Mariah immortalized as a mermaid, reports Idolator.
Word travels fast, which prompted a petition urging Mariah to cease use of any animals for her “dream wedding.”
It reads: “Mariah Carey is planning on getting married to Australian Billionnaire James Packer on Barbuda Island where she will fly her guests in a private jet. She also wants to use her money to have clowns and acrobats, which is fine, but a friend has told a newspaper that she also wants to fly in baby elephants and white tigers to the island.”
It adds, “Elephants and white tigers are decimated species and should be left alone and not used anymore as circus animals. Does she realize how traumatizing it will be for these baby elephants to be separated from their mothers and be shipped on a boat to her dream wedding? If she is pouring money, why doesn’t she use it to protect elephants from ivory poachers instead of turning baby elephants into circus animals? How many will make it alive to her dream wedding, and will she pay to safely return them home after?”
The petition is asking for 85,000 signatures, and right now it’s at 81K. Feel free to sign it here.
