    San Diego International Airport has agreed to post an animal rights ad urging tourists to avoid SeaWorld.

    The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California announced Wednesday that airport regulators agreed to settle a lawsuit by permitting the ad to be posted for a month in a terminal.

    People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says it will unveil the ad Thursday.

    PETA sued after the airport's advertising vendor refused an ad featuring actress Kathy Najimy of the HBO show ”Veep” saying, “If you love animals like I do, please avoid SeaWorld.''

    PETA opposes the San Diego park's use of captive killer whales.In a statement, SeaWorld says it's dedicated to the well-being of its animals and says they're "healthy and happy.'' It calls the PETA ad a publicity stunt.
