Want to See Tom Daley Painted as a Shark?

The naked diver was transformed into a shark to raise awareness but some fans aren't thrilled by his association with the marine life sea park.

Tom Daley teamed up with SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment to, ostensibly, raise awareness about the vital role of sharks in the ecosystem. Artist Emma Fay painted the popular gay athlete with body paint for a trompe l'oeil effect. But now fans are upset since they hate SeaWorld.

In any event, Daley did state:

"I've always been really fascinated by sharks. They're incredible marine animals, but not always in the news for the right reasons.

"Despite high profile news stories, the percentage of people hurt by sharks is very low relative to the millions of people who swim and spend time in the ocean. Sharks play a vital role to the health of the ocean. They keep fish populations balanced and protect habitats. Without sharks, the health of the ocean ecosystem would completely change.

"The greatest threat to sharks comes from humans and millions of sharks are killed each year for their fins and as commercial fishing bycatch."
