Rapper Waka Flocka Flame is serious about animal rights, so much so that he has agreed to be nude to help raise awareness for PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals). According to a PETA spokesperson Michelle Cho, Waka Flocka's animal feelings are not a publicity stunt.
"He wasn't shy about agreeing to go naked to bring attention to the fur industry," Cho revealed in an interview. "We're all huge fans of his music — I did some research online and I didn't see any photos of him wearing fur. PETA reached out to him with a request to start our 'Ink Not Mink' campaign, and come to find out, Waka doesn't even wear leather." (XXL Mag)
Previously, Waka Flocka Flame became the latest artist to
team up with animal rights organization PETA (People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals). According to multiple reports, Waka Flocka's involvement with PETA will start later this month.
Launching on February 22, Waka will be joining PETA's "Ink Not Mink"
campaign in Los Angeles, CA alongside Lady Gaga, Pink, and Mariah Carey,
Flame's publicist, Kali Bowyer said. When commenting on his involvement
with PETA, the 1017 Brick Squad rep told XXL, "Animals should be
treated the same as you would a kid. Would you want someone just to walk
up and skin your kid? H*ll no!" (XXL Mag)
