Viva la naked PETA ads!
We’ve got another one, folks, and this time he’s a beaut! Meet the running back for the Baltimore Ravens, Willis McGahee. Meet all of him in this new PETA ad for their “Ink, Not Mink” campaign. The athlete posed for the print ad, and also shot a behind-the-scenes interview with PETA.
In the interview he discusses his feelings on celebrities wearing fur, and the general cruelty toward animals that takes place in the process.
“Somebody see a celebrity with a fur coat on, you know it’s going to be a trending topic, so somebody’s going to have to go out and get it,” the 29-year-old explained. “I don’t think they understand where it comes from or how they treat the animal to get the fur.”
Then the NFL star makes things even more personal, and talks about having a dog for a pet. “Dogs are somewhat like human beings,” McGahee said. “You gotta treat them like you treat your kids.”
We couldn’t agree more!
McGahee joins a whole host of other celebrities who have gone naked for PETA in order to promote the message to their fans that animal cruelty should never be an option. Included on that list is fellow NFL player Chad Ochocinco, Guns N’ Roses Bassist Duff McKagan, and eco-hottie Pam Anderson.
