Taraji P. Henson and Celebrities Go Nude for Fur
Taraji P. Henson and celebrities go nude for fur and animal cruelty.
Taraji P. Henson has posed naked for The People of the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and an anti-fur ad. Previously, other actors like Alicia Silverstone, Eva Mendes and Charlize Theron have helped pioneer the anti-fur campaigns. Their actions are commendable and bring to light the reality of the fate of many helpless animals that are being tortured and that have been tortured simply for their coats.
The animal cruelty that occurs is outrageous at least and the term cruelty doesn’t give the definition justice as to the severity of the atrocities that continue to go on in our world by gross, vile, and despicable human beings.PETA describes The Fur Industry and other facets on their website which ought to at least warrant a few minutes of each of our time to review. There are also a few other great sites to visit with regards to taking care of our animals instead of abusing and torturing them, which are: The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and The Humane Society of the United States offers all types of domestic animals that need rescue and your help now too. In short, there are things that we can do.
Taraji P. Henson, an actress from movies such as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Karate Kid, is the latest to catch our attention and bring into the media center this on-going and evil practice of taking hide from animals simply for their fur. We watch as our countries ports are inundated with large cargo containers full of merchandise and wares that become our nation’s imports. We have the social obligation to ensure that these containers are not filled with imported furs from any country. In order to stop inhumane animal cruelty, the beginning of the process will have to come from the consumer. If there is not a demand for the product, the product will vanish.
PETA is labeled as an extremist group by many, as is the ACLU and the Right and the Left political extremes. Regardless of anyone’s view of the agency, this one cause of theirs is certainly undeniable and the fact that it continues to occur is outrageous.
A hope: May we all, like Taraji P. Henson, find our own way and work for not just the reduction, but also the elimination of animal and human cruelty and torture in our world.
