rapper and hip-hop artist Waka
shook up the charts and the airwaves with his debut album, Flockaveli. This crunkster quickly became a musical sensation and
is known for sporting some rockin' ink and serious jewelry. But underneath all
that bling is a heart of gold—Waka Flocka Flame is a huge animal lover and is
giving a shout-out to all the helpless fuzzy animals who are killed for their
fur. The rapper has joined PETA's iconic "Ink, Not Mink" campaign and
is showing his skin to help animals save theirs.
Waka thinks that "[fur] is nasty!" and urges the
hip-hop community to "understand
what you buy." Animals who are killed for their fur, such as foxes,
minks, rabbits—even dogs
bludgeoned, stomped, electrocuted, and often skinned alive. Waka shares his
disgust and exclaims, "Damn
… electrocuting and killing animals!" Undercover
investigations reveal the horror as the animals struggle and scream in pain as
workers peel the skin
from the writhing animals' bodies.
Waka Flocka Flame shot two additional ads for PETA. Check out the explicit and tame versions now!
Animals endure tremendous pain and suffering before they are
turned into coats, vests, hats, and other accessories. The only way to prevent
such unimaginable cruelty is never to buy or wear any fur or fur trim
and to encourage others to do the same. As Waka Flocka Flame prepares his
sophomore album, Triple F Life: Friends, Fans, & Family, one F you'll never see
him in is fur.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
