Yes folks, we have yet another beauty posing for PETA’s anti-fur campaign. This latest one comes to us from the UK division with Tamara Ecclestone wearing nothing but a checkered flag. For those of you not familiar with Tamara, she’s a Sky Sports TV presenter and daughter of Formula One magnate Bernie Ecclestone. Hence the racing connection.

tamara peta“I just think it’s terrible to harm living animals all in the name of vanity,” Tamara said during the shoot. “I think it’s completely unnecessary, and I think that once you’ve seen the ways in which lots of these animals are killed and how brutal and grotesque and unnecessary it is, I think that people would automatically choose not to wear fur”.

Tamara isn’t the first celebrity with a racing connection to promote PETA’s anti-fur stance. Both Michael Schumacher and Jensen Button have also done that as well — albeit with more clothes on. Sorry, ladies.

Check out Tamara’s interview on the subject here.

    Looks like PETA has done it again. Tamara Ecclestone certainly does wear fur. And leather.

    Did they think no one would check?

    Leather is different, the cows are slaughtered anyways, why not give them some dignity and use everything.. not lobbing half of the cow away.

    How do they now for sure that’s real fur anyways? There’s a thing called fake fur you know^^

    Yeah well, I think that once you’ve seen how brutal and grotesque abortion is, I think that people would automatically choose not to support it…but we’re not all going to agree on everything now are we, Tamara?
