Thanks, Chad Ochocinco
Chad Ochocinco is known for making superstar plays on—and off—the
field. He hosts a football show with fellow Bengals teammate Terrell
Owens called the T. Ocho Show and
has set multiple franchise records for the team. He charmed viewers on
season 10 of Dancing With the Stars
and captured the hearts of lucky ladies on his own VH1 dating show
The Ultimate Catch. This NFL legend
is everywhere…and is now showing off everything! Chad, an avid animal
lover, posed nude for PETA’s iconic ‘Ink, Not Mink’ campaign to protest
the cruel fur industry and prove that he’d rather go naked than wear
Chad explained to PETA, “To tell you the truth, when
I was younger growing up, I thought it was all fake―they didn’t
really kill animals.” So when he found out how animals are brutally
killed for their skins, he really wanted to become a part of this
campaign. Animals killed for their fur endure tremendous pain and
suffering before being turned into coats, hats or used as fur trim.
Foxes, minks, rabbits even
and cats are bludgeoned, stomped, electrocuted, and gassed to death.
PETA undercover investigations reveal that many are
skinned alive. The only way to prevent such unimaginable cruelty is
never to buy or wear any fur or fur trim, and by encouraging others to
do the same.

Mink’ photo shoot to learn more about why he refuses to wear fur.
