Rodman bares all for PETA

NEW YORK, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has taken it all off in an anti-fur ad for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an animal rights group.

The ad features the multi-tatooed, 6-foot-8 Rodman sitting naked in profile stating: "Think Ink, Not Mink."

Rodman, nicknamed the "Worm," is the first man to pose nude for a PETA anti-fur ad.

Actresses Pamela Anderson and Kim Bassinger and supermodel Christy Turlington have all posed in the buff for PETA's "Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur" series.

The provocative Rodman ad was introduced Monday at New York Fashion Week.

Rodman said he supports the sentiment of the ad: "Be comfortable in your own skin and let animals keep theirs."

He said he heard about PETA through a program that donates castoff fur coats to people in homeless shelters. Rodman said he only wears fake fur.
