Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson is the latest celebrity to add their voice to the PETA anti-fur campaign, by declaring “Fur? I’d Rather Go Naked.”
Admitting she wore fur until she happened across a documentary by PETA, she now says “…I saw this documentary and I was riveted. I cried… Could you imagine somebody ripping your hair out, while you’re still awake, fully conscious? It’s ridiculous, for the sake of fashion.”
The ad, shot by top photographer Don Flood and to be unveiled by Henson at PETA’s New York Fashion Week event on Feb. 10, joins those by a growing number of celebrities including Charlize Theron, Chad Ochocinco and Eva Mendes.
“I don’t think a living being should suffer for the sake of fashion, period. End of story,” continued Henson. You don’t have to kill an animal just because you want to be hot and fly. And I really stand by that.”
