Wearing fur may be considered "fashionable," but what many don't realize is that being in style hurts our furry friends.
VH1's Basketball Wives' Evelyn Lozada had NO IDEA how many animals suffered for the sake of fashion until she witnessed what happened on fur farms, and after she saw the horrible slaughters, she instantly vowed to never wear fur again.
Now, to promote her new promise, the GAWRGEOUS mama stripped down for PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" ad campaign, and she is looking like a fur-free-good-looking-hottie!
And to top off her efforts to put an end to killing animals for chic pieces, she also divulges why you should never buy fur in her new ad.
Ch-ch-check out Evelyn's ad (above) and video AFTER THE JUMP!

After lengthy discussions with PETA, Puma has pledged to NEVER use fur or exotic animal skins in any of their products.
The sportswear brand's decision is receiving praise worldwide and they were even awarded the Compassionate Retailer Award from the animal rights' organization.
PETA's EVP Tracy Reiman says Puma going animal-free is HUGE:
"Every snakeskin shoe or piece of fur trim comes with a high price—and it's paid by animals who are driven mad in cages on fur farms or nailed to trees and skinned alive. When a company of Puma's prestige takes a tough stance against animal abuse, the entire industry and other businesses worldwide sit up and take notice."
We couldn't agree more! Hopefully more companies will follow in their footsteps!
What do you think about Puma's choice? Does it make you want to support them more???
