Chilli, one third of multiplatinum music trio TLC, loves animals and is doing her part to save them!
Not only did she just rock it out last night at the AMAs with T-Boz and Lil Mama with their tribute to the late Left Eye, but now, she's starring in a new ad campaign by PETA demanding people "Boycott the Circus."
The ad features her stripped nude, covered in body paint, making her look like a tiger, trapped in a cage.
The ad reads:
"Tigers in circuses are viciously struck with sticks to make them perform difficult and confusing tricks, and they're confined to cages barely larger than their owner bodies. Help stop this cruelty by never attending a circus that uses animals."
That's just awful! We can't believe animals are still being enslaved and tortured for our pleasure!
Chilli is just upset about all of this as we are! She said in an interview with PETA:
"There's so much cruelty behind the scenes, which is a something that a lot of people don't get to see. They're being mean to them to make them do this trick .… And I think that everybody needs to be aware of what's really going on.
If you can raise awareness to something that's important, such as this, then you should. Because I know for a fact that I would never want to be in a cage."
Unless of course it was to raise awareness for those who had no choice!
Way to take the fight into your own hands Chillli!
Looking great in the ad, by the way!!
