South Atlanta Resident, Waka Flocka, in the nude for new PETA Campaign

South Atlanta Resident, Waka Flocka, in the nude for new PETA Campaign

Atlanta, GA--  PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has chosen Rapper and South Fulton resident as the new spokesperson for their campaign.  Waka Flocka is a well known Atlanta rapper and is supposedly an avid animal lover. 

The campaign boldly states "Ink, Not Mink" , with the rapper fully unclothed, tattoos covering his body, and 2 diamond chains covering his private area.

According to the PETA site, "Waka thinks that "[fur] is nasty!" and urges the hip-hop community to "understand what you buy." Animals who are killed for their fur, such as foxes, minks, rabbits—even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, stomped, electrocuted, and often skinned alive."
