Waka Flocka Flame

After learning how animals are killed for food, Waka Flocka Flame gave up more than his clothes like he did for his recent PETA PSA against fur.

In an exclusive, behind the scenes video with PETA, Waka says he doesn’t even eat red meat anymore, citing the treatment of animals for food as one of his reasons.

Lent is approaching, and many are considering giving up what they consider pleasurable foods such as chocolate and meat. If they continued giving up animals products long after the holiday is over, what are some benefits they might gain?

Medical benefits range from the bones to the bowels.

Here are a few reasons to give up red meat like Waka, from The Independent.

Bowel Cancer: People who eat several portions of meat per week are 30% more likely to develop bowel cancer than those who eat less than one portion per week.

Alzheimer’s Disease: Researchers at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) suggest red meat may cause a buildup of Iron in the brain. To make a long story short, your brain gets rusty.

Waka Flocka Flame‘s anti fur ad for PETA is set for release soon and Rumor Fix got an exclusive behind the scenes interview and footage from the shoot.

Basically, Waka is stripping down to nothing but a gold necklace, but Rumor Fix will only show the G-rated version. Darn those wholesome, family values-carrying reporters!

After researching what PETA stands for, Waka agreed that doing an “Ink Not Mink” ad that shows off his tattoos to promote not wearing fur was perfect way for him to make a statement about his love for animals, which includes a family dog that was named after his mother, Rose Antney.

“I don’t want anybody to beat my dog, scare my dog or whip my dog,” Waka said.

Waka Flocka Flame plans to show the world he’s not down with fur once his PETA “Ink Not Mink” anti-fur ad is unveiled.

As it turns out, Waka always wears his own skin. This guy is fur AND leather free.

From Sohh:

“He wasn’t shy about agreeing to go naked to bring attention to the fur industry,” Cho revealed in an interview. “We’re all huge fans of his music — I did some research online and I didn’t see any photos of him wearing fur. PETA reached out to him with a request to start our ‘Ink Not Mink’ campaign, and come to find out, Waka doesn’t even wear leather.”

Waka Flocka Flame, southern hip-hop and rap artist best known for his single, “No Hands,” will launch an anti-fur ad with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals later this month.
