During the segment, John Stossel comments about how he reached out to may of the cast from Blackfish for an interview, but all of them declined except one.
Jeff Ventre, a former SeaWorld trainer who was fired for putting his head inside a killer whale’s mouth, commented to the Orlando Sentinel about not participating in the segment:
We feel there’s a good chance its basically going to be a mudslinging event. We just didn’t feel this was a legitimate production.
Which is funny, since Jeff Ventre seemed to indulge in mudsling on his own twitter page all weekend.
After the segment aired, Blackfish participant co-author of “Beneath The Surface” and noted racist John Hargrove took to twitter blasting John Stossel for “lying” stating that he had never been invited to be interviewed.
He threw a fit, repeating the same tweet 9 times!
What John Hargrove clearly wasn’t prepared for was the truth bomb that was thrown back at him.
John Stossel’s team tweeted back to John Hargrove immediately stating that not only did they in fact contact him, but they had the emails to prove it.

When you read the email, not only do you see that John Stossel’s team bent over backwards to accommodate John Hargrove’s schedule, but they also were willing to give him pre-interview prep and hair and makeup work.
This latest Hargrove fit speaks volumes about his character. And it’s par for the course for the entire Blackfish cabal. It basically proves the entire point behind the Stossel show, exposing the deceit of the film.
