has done it again! Dancing with the Stars Karina Smirnoff goes naked for a new ad campaign for the ever controversial PETA aptly entitled “I’d Rather Dance Naked than Wear Fur.” Quite fitting indeed and the timing is actually perfect. although she wears fur before, Sminoff admits that she stopped wearing one after watching a video footage of baby seals getting killed for their skins.
She joins other “socially-aware” celebrities who starred in different PETA anti-fur ad campaigns – Charlize Theron, Eva Mendes, Khloe Kardashian, and Pamela Anderson.
“I did wear fur, especially when I was growing up in the Ukraine,” Smirnoff admits in an exclusive PETA interview. “But there are ways of being warm and being fashionable without being cruel…we take advantage of an innocent animal that cannot defend herself.”
Smirnoff joins a growing list of celebrities—including Pamela Anderson, Khloe Kardashian, Eva Mendes, and Charlize Theron, who have starred in PETA’s anti-fur ad campaign.
