Actress Taraji P. Henson is the latest star who would rather go naked than wear fur in PETA's long running campaign.

“When I realized what went into – we’re not just even talking about a full-length fur coat, I’m talking about just … fur on your gloves or on your jacket – what goes into making that little piece of fur ripped my heart out,” said the actress. “And as humans, we have control. What if someone said, ‘Black skin is the new fur’?”

According to the charity: “Suffering and furs go hand in hand. Animals on fur farms spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages before meeting a painful death. Denied proper veterinary care, they languish with open wounds and sores in cages. These living conditions can cause the animals severe psychological distress, and consequently, many of the animals turn to self-mutilation and cannibalism.”
