PETA and Hip Hop

PETA is one of those organizations that awes me as to which celebrities they call upon to represent their cause. I was befuddled when they had offered to do an ad with Michael Vick after his infamous incarceration for funding pitbull fighting. Even more shocking was last years PETA ad against fur starring Waka Flocka Flame. They are back at it again this year, with a TV campaign against animal abuse.

In the past, PETA has been associated with Hip Hop acts such as Russell Simmons and k-os. On the other hand, PETA has also gone after Kim Kardashian, Kelis, Dr. Dre, and Beyonce & Jay-Z (all known for wearing fur at different points in their careers).
