Although TLC have been dealing with some backlash from their biopic which previewed last month, that hasn’t stopped the duo from continuing down their lengthy path of success. For last night saw another great performance from them at the AMAs featuring Lil’ Mama – who played the role of Left Eye in the VH1 film.
Chilli, who is known for speaking out on what she believes in, can now add something else to her list of things she’s passionate about. PETA, who has previously enlisted artists from every genre to petition against the use of animals for products, has now partnered with the songstress to help protect against the abuse of tigers.
The Grammy Award winning artist is seen crouched inside a cage sporting nothing but tiger striped body paint. The latest ad campaign titled, “Boycott the Circus,” reveals that the circus abuses tigers and beats them into submission while throwing them into cramped and filthy cages when they are not performing.
When asked why she chose to do the campaign, Chilli stated:
“If you can raise awareness to something that’s important, such as this, then you should,” she says. “Because I know for a fact that I would never want to be in a cage.”
Touché to that. Take a look at the video below and hit the comments with your thoughts!
