Washington -- Posing shirtless and revealing his tattooed chest and torso, Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas stars in PETA's anti-fur ad campaign "Ink, Not Mink." The ad was shot by photographer Rafael Suanes at D.C.'s Verizon Center, the home of the Wizards.
"From the basketball court to the boardroom, from the controversial figure to the style icon, everyone's shunning fur," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Arenas shows that you can have a killer look without killing animals. Few industries on the planet are as foul as the fur trade, which bludgeons, electrocutes, and skins animals alive for the sake of vanity."
The three-time NBA All-Star is the latest athlete to team up with PETA in campaigns to stop animal suffering. Amar'e Stoudemire, Tony Gonzalez, Aaron Curry, Michael Strahan, "Sugar" Shane Mosley, and Tito Ortiz have also participated in PETA's campaigns.
Arenas hopes that by participating in PETA's famed "Ink, Not Mink" campaign, he will spotlight the fact that for every cuff, collar, piece of trim, or coat made from real fur, an animal suffered a miserable life and an agonizing death.
