INK NOT MINK

WATCH: New York Jets’ Brett Lockett Strips Down For PETA

brett lockett PETA

Tattooed New York Jets safety Brett Lockett joined up with PETA to take a stand against fur this winter. We salute any pro athlete who uses their celebrity for a good cause—especially if it involves them getting naked. (What, we can’t be lustful and civic-minded?)

Below, Lockett goes into some detail about his involvement and the campaign’s photo shoot. “What really hurt me was when I saw that an animal was still able to move and lift its head up after it was completely skinned,” says Lockett. “It brought tears to my eyes.” (Warning: The video does contain some graphic depictions of fur-industry atrocities.)

    Whenever I see PETA I see the people who fund terrorist activities all over the USA and the UK, I see the people who smashed the car and attacked the child of one of my lecturers at university.

    I see the uneducated and verminous masses at their absolute worst.

    “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on or use for entertainment” Isn’t the football he is holding made out of leather?

  • Dionte

    well unlike some others, I appreciate ink (a lot). but I don’t believe PETA for one minute to some saintly organization for Animal care. I’ll take the guy. NOT the underground bullshit they’re trying to sell by using him though

    If you’re so comfortable in your own skin, then why do you have to mark it up with all kinds of crap that’s going to really look like hell when you get wrinkles?

  • hf2hvit

    @Thom in MD: AMEN!

    @Thom in MD: Yeah if this was 1960 it would be leather. Times haves changed as has the materials used to make a football. Jesus Christ before you tear someone down try your best to GET A CLUE……..

  • DerekR

    as HAVE the materials

  • hf2hvit

    @DerekR: When did “jesus Christ” become a verb? JESUS CHRIST SOMEBODY! I’M GOING TO JESUS CHRIST YOU!

  • Thom in MD

    @DerekR: Before you make a comment check the punctuation mark at the end of a sentence. I was asking a question. Do you know what ? means? Now you GET A CLUE before you tear someone down!

    @DerekR: BTW I did do some research on footballs. “In North America, the term football refers to a ball made of leather, which is required in professional and collegiate football. Footballs used in recreation, and in organised youth football, may be made of rubber or plastic materials (the high school football rulebooks still allow the inexpensive all-rubber footballs, though they are less common than leather).” This is from Wikipedia. Go check it out its under American Football.

    @hf2hvit: @Tracy: I don’t even wanna start with you muthafuckas today. but all I’m just gonna say is this:
    “the only difference between tattooed people and non tattooed people is tattooed people don’t make it a big deal if you’re not tattooed”
