The megastar is just looking for a little help from his fans, is all, in helping to outlaw the sale of shark fin in New York, tweeting on Friday: "We did it in Cali. C'mon ‪#NewYork‬! RT @Oceana. Time is running out for bill banning trade of ‪#shark‬ fins" with a link to an Oceana petition. In response, he received messages like "watching you in titanic is like watching michael angelo [sic] paint the 16th [sic] chapel ♡" and "ughhhh you're finally back after 9 days!! yay" — to which we'd respond (a) no doubt, and (b) let's just focus, megafans and would-be shark-fin-banners, it's game time.
