In July of this year, Courtney Stodden suffered a miscarriage.
Because this is Courtney Stodden, however, and because she has made a name for herself by doing anything within her power to get attention, some critics have cast doubt on whether or not Stodden was even pregnant.
But the Z-List celebrity is featured in a new ad for PETA, one in which she opens up about the miscarriage by comparing it to the abuse of whales at SeaWorld…
… and the miscarriage either happened for sure.
Or Stodden is a better actress than we thought.
“The feeling of losing a child is one that no mother should ever have to experience,” says Stodden, fighting off tears and adding:
“That’s why it breaks my heart to think of Corky – an orca who has lost all seven of her babies, the last of whom was found floating lifeless at the bottom of a tank at SeaWorld.”
Stodden, of course, rose to prominent because she married actor Doug Hutchison when she was 18 years old and he was 52 years old.
But that unusual decision doesn’t mean she’s off base here in her criticism of SeaWorld.
“Corky has endured the loss of family eight times, starting when she was forcibly taken from the ocean from her mother and sold into captivity when she was very young,” she says below.
“For 47 years, she has only known trauma, loss and sadness in captivity within the cramped, chemically treated confines of a concrete tank.”
