Mario is the latest celebrity to hop on the PETA bandwagon and promote their whole anti-fur movement. The 23-year-old R&B singer says he picks his bare bod and “ink” (tattoos) over “mink” (fur).

“Every piece of fur that you see out there and people wearing, there’s an animal [who’s] lost … his or her life.” This realization prompted him not just to give up wearing fur but also to pass up opportunities to profit from the suffering of animals. In the video, he tells us, “I’ve been offered deals to wear fur … for tour and for stage.” But Mario proves with this ad that he’d rather go shirtless than steal the skin of a beautiful animal. Find out what else Mario had to say on The PETA Files.
