The animal rights organization freaked when they saw photos of Celtics guard Nate Robinson posing in an oversized fur coat on Rajon Rondo‘s Twitter page.
According to The Boston Globe, the jacket was allegedly given to Robinson by Shaquille O’Neal, but Celtics public relations director Heather Walker says the jacket does not belong to Robinson.
PETA is now requesting that Robinson donate the jacket in exchange for “funds equivalent to the value of the coat to pay for veterinary care for dogs and cats owned by low-income people in the Boston area.”
PETA representative Michelle Cho went on to write: “Each year, millions of foxes, minks, coyotes, rabbits — even dogs and cats — are bludgeoned, genitally electrocuted, drowned, and strangled with wire nooses so that their skins can be made into fur coats and other fur items.”
Who knows, maybe Robinson will take the request to heart and follow in Chad Ochocinco‘s “Ink, Not Mink” campaign footsteps.
What should the caption be for the photos below? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
“I don’t think you can sit here and say, ‘Well, this week’s not important.’ Or for example, this week, ‘Well, let’s just go out there and rest for a week.’ Well, how are we going to get better then? How are we going to get better? We’ve got to get better [Friday]. We got better [Thursday]. We got better on Wednesday. We’re going to have a better team this Sunday.”

When things get a little messy in Boston, some fans turn to meditation to get through it. That’s what this fan did after the Celtics picked up a disturbing loss in Detroit.
“Oh… it’s just so messy. I just can’t figure out what to think. So they lose a few. Such is life in sports. When the talent level is there it all hinges on health. Take a deep breath and hope for the best. ohmmmmmmmmmmmmmm”
