Waka Flocka Flame has a lot of love for his furry friends. In fact the Atlanta bad boy revealed to XXLMag.com that his passion for animal rights inspired him to be involved in the new PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) campaign.

Launching on February 22, Waka will be joining PETA’s "Ink Not Mink" campaign in Los Angeles, CA alongside Lady Gaga, Pink, and Mariah Carey, Flame’s publicist, Kali Bowyer said.

When commenting on his involvement with PETA, the 1017 Brick Squad rep told XXL, “Animals should be treated the same as you would a kid. Would you want someone just to walk up and skin your kid? Hell no!” —Amber McKynzie
