Gilbert Arenas’ ‘Ink, Not Mink’ Ad

NBA guard Gilbert Arenas scores points for animals and joins other legendary sports stars and celebrities by posing for PETA’s “Ink, Not Mink” campaign. Gilbert shows off his tattoos and bares his skin to help animals keep theirs.

Foxes, coyotes, minks, rabbits—even cats and dogs—are bludgeoned, strangled, and genitally electrocuted in the name of fashion. To avoid damaging their pelts, workers even skin some animals alive.

Gilbert is a three-time NBA All-Star and a three-time member of the All-NBA Team. His sizzling moves have earned him nicknames such as “Agent Zero” and “Hibachi,” a Japanese word that means “bowl of fire.” Gilbert’s a fierce competitor on the court, but it’s his compassion toward animals off the court that makes him a true all-star.

Join Gilbert in refusing to contribute to animal suffering by not buying or wearing fur or fur trim!
