Chilli Strips Down, Transforms Into Tiger for PETA Campaign
Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas is back on the activist path after. This time she’s joining forces with PETA for an anti-circus campaign, and she’s fighting with the eye of the tiger — or rather the body paint of one.
The TLC songstress stripped down and covered herself in tiger-striped body paint. Chilli’s bold look is to raise awareness about tigers being abused and locked in cages for the sake of entertainment.
“There’s so much cruelty behind the scenes, which is a something that a lot of people don’t get to see,” Chill says in a PETA interview. “They’re being mean to them to make them do this trick, and I think that everybody needs to be aware of what’s really going on. If you can raise awareness to something that’s important, such as this, then you should. Because I know for a fact that I would never want to be in a cage.”
Before the campaign, Chilli spoke out against online bullying after MediaTakeOut.com published an article that made inferences about her son Tron Austin’s sexual preferences.
