PETA loves to objectify women, er, NFL players.

PETA: an Equal-Opportunity Objectifier—for a Cause.

Animals killed for their fur endure tremendous pain and suffering before being turned into coats, hats or used as fur trim. Foxes, minks, rabbits even dogs and cats are bludgeoned, stomped, electrocuted, and gassed to death. PETA undercover investigations reveal that many are skinned alive. The only way to prevent such unimaginable cruelty is never to buy or wear any fur or fur trim, and by encouraging others to do the same.

Watch this exclusive behind-the-scenes video from Ochocinco’s naked ‘Ink, Not Mink’ photo shoot to learn more about why he refuses to wear fur.

Somehow, I doubt I’ll get the usual complaints about objectification on this one…

    Did anyone during the entire production of this campaign and behind-the-scenes video shoot ever stop and ask what the hell that football is made out of?

  2. Dylan says:

    LOL. He doesn't have a say in the football's construction, pbroderick.

    He's also bringing new "definition" to the term "football."

    He rocking those gold cleats down low?!
