Actress and model Olivia Munn is the latest celebrity to go nude for PETA's I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur campaign, according to reports.
She recently appeared on a Los Angeles billboard just topless next to a rabbit with the tagline asking, Who Needs Fur to be Beautiful?
PETA said that the full-length nude version of Munn's ad was too racy for the Los Angeles billboard on Beverly Boulevard. However, that version can be viewed here and other celebs baring different levels of skin can be seen on PETA's Web site.
When you think about even that little tiny trim of fur on your gloves or on your collar, that is still coming from an animal that had to endure so much pain just for you, said 31-year-old correspondent for The Daily Show in a press release announcing the campaign. There's nothing good about pretending like you don't know.
The point of PETA's campaign is to spread awareness that animals suffer inhumane treatment in the making of fur. The organization allows those who support the campaign to sign a pledge to be fur-free with a statement on its site reading:
Consumers everywhere need to know the truth about fur. When people learn that millions of innocent animals are beaten, boiled, hanged, and electrocuted for their fur every year; that each fur coat, each piece of fur lining or fur trim, and each fur cat toy represents the intense suffering of dozens of animals; and that furriers intentionally mislabel the fur of cats and dogs as fur from other species or as faux fur-then every decent human being will want to go fur-free.
By signing the pledge below-and encouraging your friends and family to do so as well-you'll be sending a powerful message not only to the fur industry but also to designers, retailers, and others who directly profit from the suffering caused by this cruel industry.
According to the Huffington Post, Munn previously posed nude for PETA in 2010, advocating that people boycott the circus over animal cruelty. Check out her most recent interview with PETA in December 2011 below:
