TLC member, Chilli, is taking a stand against circus cruelty in a new ad for PETA.

TLC’s Chilli poses for new PETA AD dressed as a tiger asking fans to boycott the circus.

According to PETA, animals are forced to endure a lifetime of abuse and loneliness at the hands of the circus.

“There’s so much cruelty behind the scenes,” said Chilli. “They’re being mean to them to make them do this trick that everybody sees and thinks that the animal really wants to do it. And I think that everybody needs to be aware of what’s really going on.”

“I think it’s very important to use your celebrity for positive things,” she said. “If you can raise awareness to something that’s important such as this, then you should.”
