Waka Flocka Flame Strips Down for New PETA Campaign

Posted by on March 8, 2011 | Permalink

Wearing nothing but strategically placed bling, rapper Waka Flocka Flame shows off his tattoos – and more – in his brand-new PETA campaign ad, with the message “Ink, Not Mink. Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin and Let Animals Keep Theirs”. The ad was shot by top celebrity photographer Robert Sebree.

In an exclusive PETA US interview, Waka calls on the hip-hop community to consider the animals who are cruelly killed for fur coats, collars and cuffs. “Understand where that fox fur came from before you spend $1,000”, he says. “Someone got their head beat in and electrocuted …. Understand what you buy, instead of just going off fashion and what it looks like—that’s what I’d tell my community.”

Waka also speaks out against forcing animals to perform in circuses. “I don’t agree with that at all”, he says. “That shit is whack.” We’re with you, Waka!

Join Waka, be comfortable in your own skin and pledge never to wear the skin of another animal.
