PETA announced TV host Wendy Williams as the new face of the "I'd rather go naked than wear fur campaign.
Wendy Williams will greet holiday shoppers with a sexy appeal to cross fur off their lists as she unveils her “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” ad in Times Square to launch PETA’s national winter campaign:This goes down Wednesday, November 28th at 1pm in Times Square (pedestrian plaza on Broadway between 44th & 45th)
“We should all try to be comfortable in our own skin and let the animals keep theirs,” says Wendy, who once wore real mink and fox but had a change of heart after learning how animals are electrocuted, beaten and even skinned alive for their fur. Williams joins Eva Mendes, Christy Turlington, Taraji P. Henson and other stars who renounced fur then volunteered to appear in PETA’s iconic naked campaign.
In addition to her ad, Wendy will encourage her viewers to donate their fur coats to PETA so they can be given to the homeless. PETA is working with shelters in Wendy’s home state of New Jersey on their coat drives this winter, which have seen greater demand as the numbers of the needy and displaced have increased after Hurricane Sandy.
