San Diego Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers has joined an illustrious group of NFL players that are apart of PETA’s anti-fur athletes, that look to seek awareness on the devastation animals suffer for their fur.
“I wanted to get involved with [PETA’s anti-fur campaign] because first off, I’m an animal lover,” Flowers told PETA in an exclusive video interview. “I have a dog. And I couldn’t imagine someone just taking my dog’s fur or skinning my dog alive or killing him just to be selfish.”
The ad campaign comes at a very timely part of the year, as fur products are in high demand around the holiday season.
In the photo Flowers is seen showing his tattooed arms and torso next to displays that read, “Ink, Not Mink. Be Comfortable in Your Own Skin, and Let Animals Keep Theirs.”
Other NFL players who are also apart of PETA’s campaign include Tony Gonzalez, Terrell Suggs, Stevie Johnson, Antoine Bethea, Le’Veon Bell, Willis McGahee, Bret Lockett, Maurice Jones-Drew and Aaron Curry.
