TLC’s Chilli strips for PETA.

Chilli, TLC, Peta, Boycott the Circus

In the animal rights organization’s new anti-circus campaign, the 42-year-old singer strips down naked and wears only striped tiger body paint to make a statement. She speaks;

“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.”“If you can raise awareness to something that’s important, such as this, then you should,” she continues. “Because I know for a fact that I would never want to be in a cage.”

 Across the top of the ad reads, “Beaten, lonely and abused: Boycott the circus” (according to PETA, the tigers are also regularly beaten into submission).

“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,” reads a PETA press release for the new ad. “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.”
