Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada—a former fur-wearer who had a change of heart and gave up fur for good after she saw for herself how animals suffer on fur farms—will unveil her cheeky new winter-themed naked anti-fur ad for PETA. Evelyn shared in an interview with PETA:
“You can verbalize what happens to these animals a thousand times, but [when] you see it, it definitely clicks in—and it did for me. I [saw] how these animals are tortured and skinned, and you don’t really realize the hurt and the pain that they go through just for fashion, and I want to be a voice for them.”
Evelyn’s new PETA campaign will be unveiled this week at her birthday party and will be featured on the upcoming season of Basketball Wives (which is currently being filmed). Evelyn joins a growing list of celebrities—including Wendy Williams, Eva Mendes, Christy Turlington, and Taraji P. Henson—who have renounced fur and then volunteered to appear in PETA’s iconic naked campaign.
