Karina Smirnoff: Nude for PETA

by at . Comments

Having broken up with Maksim Chmerkovskiy this summer, Karina Smirnoff is now free to flirt, go on dates and show off her naked body to pretty much anyone.

Case in point: the Dancing with the Stars professional in the latest in a long line of random celebrities to don her birthday suit in a PETA campaign against fur. (Season nine contestant Joanna Krupa has also bared it all for the same cause.)

"I did wear fur, especially when I was growing up in the Ukraine," Smirnoff said, adding that she ceased sporting it when she watched footage of baby seals who were killed for their skins.

It's terrible "when we take advantage of an innocent animal that cannot defend herself," Karina said. "There are ways of being warm and being fashionable without being cruel."

That's true. There are also ways of getting this message across, PETA, without wasting millions on these ad campaigns. Perhaps you should actually save troubled animals with that cash instead.

I fully support animal rights but the PETA organization definitely has some wackos in the ranks and isn't above hypocrisy.

i've actually heard that PETA doesn't pay for these ad campaigns, they get everything donated (the talent, the photographer, everything). also, think about how many people this positive message will reach! this ad is beautiful, go Karina and go PETA!
