NFL Star Le'Veon Bell: Ink, Not Mink

Posted by  Chelsi Schriver

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is fast on the field. During his college days, he set records for most yards rushed, and now he is on his way to becoming one of the NFL’s best runners. Aside from repping the strength, loyalty, and pride of the Steeler Nation, Le’Veon is the latest all-star to join peta2’s “Ink, Not Mink” campaign, because animals deserve better!

Millions of foxes, minks, raccoons, rabbits, chinchillas, and even cats and dogs are electrocuted, beaten, drowned, strangled, and skinned alive EVERY YEAR to make fur coats, fur-lined boots, and pieces of fur trim used on jacket hoods, scarves, and gloves. Making matters even worse, in China, the world’s largest exporter of fur, there are no penalties for abusing animals on fur farms.

The cruelty that these animals endure is heartbreaking, and when Le’Veon learned about what really happens in the fur trade, he knew that he had to step up and speak out about why he’ll always choose ink, not mink!

Check out our behind-the-scenes interview with Le’Veon to see what else he has to say:

    I swear to god if he isn’t even Vegan he is pretending to have virtues/values that he doesn’t actually have. Why not wear fur? Because its cruel and unnecessary. Why be Vegan? Because you don’t need to buy or consume anything that comes from animals to be happy happy healthy, or in other words its cruel and unnecessary to be less than Vegan and as far as morals are concerned people who are less than vegan are no better than Michael Vick.
