LOS ANGELES: Actress Blake Lively has come under fire from shark conservationists for her starring role in new movie ” The Shallows “.
The 28-year-old portrays a surfer fighting for her life after being attacked by a great white shark in the upcoming horror-thriller, and Valerie Faye , the writer of a new petition believes the movie poses a great danger for the sea creatures, reported CNN.
Her online petition, which has already garnered over 21,000 signatures, reads, “In reality, we pose a greater danger to sharks than they do to us .
“Blake Lively is responsible for perpetuating the false belief that sharks should be hunted and not helped.
According to National Geographic, for every human killed by a shark, humans kill approximately two million sharks!”
