"We should all try to be comfortable in our own skin and let the animals keep theirs," says Williams.
Talk show host Wendy Williams stripped down to her birthday suit for a brand new PETA ad.
She’s the latest celebrity to join the organization’s popular “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign—joining the ranks of Eva Mendes, Christy Turlington and Taraji P. Henson.
In a press release for the ad, Williams revealed she had a change of heart about wearing furs and leather when she learned how animals were treated to retrieve their fur. “We should all try to be comfortable in our own skin and let animals keep theirs,” said Williams.
“PETA has proven there is a sexy way to suggest to people to rethink the fur,” she said about her hot photo shoot. Williams hasn’t worn fur about seven years.
In addition, Williams is teaming up with her home state of New Jersey with their coat drive. She’s encouraging folks to donate their fur coats to PETA—each coat turned in will be given to the homeless this winter.
