We've seen tons of celebrities stand up with PETA and fight for animal rights. The latest to take on this role is non other than Chilli of TLC. Chilli strips down to stripes in her new ad to boycott the circus because of their animal cruelty. 
PETA's new ad campaign to boycott the circus features Chilli covered in body paint as a tiger in a cage and boy does she look amazing!

PETA stated that:

"Circuses deprive tigers of everything that is natural and important to them, including interacting with their families, foraging and hunting for food, and roaming for miles. Tigers used by circuses are locked in small cages and warehoused in traveling boxcars, where they are exposed to extreme heat and freezing-cold weather. These unnatural and stressful conditions lead tigers and other big cats to become ill, despondent, and increasingly agitated, endangering other animals, circus workers, and attendees."

In her exclusive interview, Chilli explains why she decided to take on this job:

"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." She continued by saying "If you can raise awareness to something that's important, such as this, then you should," she says. "Because I know for a fact that I would never want to be in a cage."

This is so sad. We really like the circus but we've never even thought about what the animals had to go through. Seeing those animals get hit like that really brought tears to our eyes.Hopefully this campaign is successful in raising awareness of this issue and the circus can do a better job of caring for the animals and treating them a lot better. If not, the circus could really lose a lot of money.

What do you think? Are you still going to go to the circus?
