Simple Plan is Anti-Fur

A while back, the band Simple Plan approached peta2 about helping out with our anti-fur campaign. We jumped at the opportunity to work with these guys, and shot an ad that shows the bloody truth about the fur industry.
Entertainment Today recently featured an article written by reporter and PETA member Denise Ames about the band and their involvement with peta2. Here’s a little clip:
It is well-known that the band couldn’t care less about what people think of them. However, when it comes to animals, it’s a whole different story. They recently approached the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to help out with their extensive “No Fur” campaign. The band recently posted shirtless with a dead fox to spread the message about wearing fur.
“We are taking gradual steps toward being a part of the fight for animal rights,” said Desrosiers. Guitarist Levebvre adds, “The wearing of real fur is just really extreme. We felt we had to do something. And besides, if Jeff (Stinco) took his clothes off you’d realize what fur really is!” (Laughs) Desrosiers, “Seriously, no chick is going to get backstage with us if she’s wearing fur… It’s Simple Plan’s law.”

If you haven’t gotten a chance to view the ad yet, check it out now!

    I love Simple Plan, and I’m like really big in not being cruel to animals. Them doing this just really made my day, I mean I think about it and I’m just so happy that one of my favorite bands actually supports something everyone should support. And most importantly they aren’t supporting it to go along with the crowd, they’re supporting it because they actually believe in it.

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.
