Would T.I. Rather Go Naked?

T.I.

Listen up, ladies! You know how there’s a never-ending list of female celebs willing to take it off to save animals, but sometimes men seem to be in short supply? Well, we’re proposing that one more gentleman be added to the ranks of guys like Steve-O and David Cross, who have participated in our “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign: rapper and producer T.I.

Before T.I. reported to prison last week to serve his sentence for federal weapons charges, he sought some advice from PETA friend Martha Stewart on how to pass the time while incarcerated.

Well, if we don’t just have the best idea ever.

Just after Martha was released from jail a few years ago, she narrated a public service announcement explaining the truth about the fur industry. So we’ve sent a letter to T.I. asking him to join Martha in the fight against the fur industry by posing for one of PETA’s iconic ads after his release.

In the letter, we let T.I. know that we understand how he’ll “[experience] firsthand what it is like for the millions of minks, rabbits, and other animals who are confined to filthy sheds on fur farms. But unlike inmates who are freed when they finish their sentences, these animals are beaten, have their necks broken, are electrocuted, and are often skinned alive for their fur.”

Hopefully, T.I. will give it some thought and decide to show us his birthday suit after losing his orange jumpsuit.

  • Brittany Valdes-Pages says:

    I can’t wait to hear TI’s response to this letter. Especially because hiphop style is known for wearing different types of fur and skin so I really hope he goes for it. He’s hot too but if he’s rude and declines my opinion will severely change.

  • Michele says:

    Maybe T.I would let me go naked with him in the ad

  • bob says:

    he isn’t going to do it he doesn’t care about that

  • Denise says:

    I’d love to see his reaction to the letter. I think he’s probably think it is ridiculous but you never know. It would be interesting to see how this turns out. I love T.I. and so do my kids.

  • Cara says:

    I hope T.I. joins this cause! Definetely would be a good ad for the ladies to look at. He’s HOTTTT!!!

  • Marty says:

    T.I is not vegetarian neither is Martha. You dont have to be vegetarian to star in these ads. I’d like to see that ad if he does participates!
