Taraji P. Henson Goes Nude For Peta

The actress is the latest star to pose nude for PETA in their cruelty against animals ad, “Id Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur.” We have all seen Taraji rock fur before, but after seeing the PETA documentary, she had a change of heart and said,”Education is key, when I realized what went into not just, we’re not just even talking about a full-length fur coat, I’m talking about just, like, fur on your gloves or on your jacket … it ripped my heart out. And as humans, we have control. What if someone said, Black skin is the new fur’?” “I don’t think a living being should suffer for the sake of fashion, period. End of story, you don’t have to kill an animal just because you want to be hot and fly. And I really stand by that.”

I agree with Taraji, after seeing the video on PETA, it’s heart-breaking how these animals die. Do you rock fur?? Originally Posted on Jae Ink Speaks Blog
