Chad Ochocinco has no problem baring his soul to the public, and the receiver is now baring his body for PETA.
Like many celebrities, Ochocinco joined in the fight against fur by posing naked in a PETA ad with a strategically placed football.
The outspoken receiver is no stranger to the spotlight — he’s had his own reality dating show The Ultimate Catch, grooved on Dancing With the Stars and sought guidance from Jesse Jackson. He’s even raced a horse for charity. Now, Ochocinco wants to draw attention to the harsh treatment of animals killed for their fur.
“To tell you the truth, when I was younger growing up, I thought it was all fake — they didn’t really kill animals,” Ochocinco told PETA.
The receiver is passionate about helping the critters killed for their skin — such as foxes, minks, rabbits, and even dogs and cats. Many of these animals are brutally killed by bludgeoning or electrocution.
