TLC’s Chilli strips for PETA.
“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.”
“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.”
