Duff McKagan Strips For Peta Pose

Bassist Duff McKagan gets naked to support PETA's "Ink, Not Mink" campaign against furs.

Duff McKagan, well known for his work with groups such as Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver, is the latest person to help raise awareness for PETA's Ink, Not Mink program. But rather than donating money or putting on a concert, McKagan's involvement was much more revealing. The Ink, Not Mink ad campaign is designed to prevent people from purchasing real furs and to help protect threatened animals. Both Duff and his supermodel/swimsuit designing wife Susan Holmes McKagan contributed to the cause by posing nude for a charity advertisement. I believe in further educating myself and other people in any way I can [about this issue]. Actions speak louder than words, and we're here to do something about it, said Susan, in addition to claiming that fur clothing is both immoral and out of fashion. Duff then went on to say that Seals have never seen humans, so they're not afraid of [humans]. They just sit there [as targets for slaughter]. I think kids are much more aware of things like this than we were. Duff and his wife haven't been the only two to get naked to support this charity. Other famous musicians such as Tommy Lee, Chester Bennington, and Mario have also been involved in advertising for Ink, Not Mink in an attempt to help reduce animal cruelty.

    PETA: People for Extortion, Terror, and Abuse. Peta is the biggest piece of garbage and most hypocritical organization EVER. That Bullshit with Penn and Tellar episode on PETA says it all. They are an evil group.

    I support Duff. Because I'm in denial, and I'm sure this MUST have some sort of catch to it. Hunt, kill, eat. Fuck PETA.

    Pen and Teller are *****s too. The one that talks thinks everything sucks; he even ruins magic by explaining how he does his tricks. They don't actually do anything beneficial, they just try to find every imperfection in everything. No one ever said anything was perfect

    He's supporting PETA in this one cause...that people shouldn't be wearing fur coats anymore. I fully agree with PETA on this. War makes strange bedfellows. He never said he supported all of their crazy batsh!t. Just that he thinks wearing the skins of animals is immoral.

    honestly I don't like the way fur looks, but I still think this is a stupic cause... people hunt, and if they want to turn the pelt into a coat, I don't see why they shouldn't. Look I get that for the most part these animals are hunted specifically for their fur, but I rarely ever see anyone wearing fur anyway. I mean the use of fur coats has decreased greatly over the past twenty or thirty years, I don't see how it is still a problem... either way PETA is still a shitty organization that tries to blow any occurance of animal cruelty, no matter how small, up to the size of an astronomical event. f**k PETA and I've lost respect for all the artists that are getting in on this.

    I'm not vegetarian - we're human beings and, by nature and design are omnivores - but I abhor the mistreatment of animals. Do not be mistaken, I will kill with my bare hands if it comes down to survival, but we tend to have shops these days. By the same token, PETA can tget stuffed. Hypocritical fools that have little respect in the vegan community anyway. My other half is vegetarian and it seems that every other person I know is, too. No one I know supports their cause, tactics or schemes. As much as I like Duff, this isn't something I can support.

As somebody that was raised in a hunting family and culture, I can honestly say that everything PETA says regarding hunting and use of fur is complete bullshit. NOBODY I know that hunts is that immoral to skin a live animal. There's a reason for why you see a TARGET in the vital areas of animal every decoy. One shot, one kill. THAT'S the goal! Every piece of the animal is used, if possible. They're mis-informed and they've publicly admitted that they don't even film the videos the show to the public. Anything they do is political smut and I'd love nothing more to see that organization go under. It's disappointing to see Duff do such a terrible thing, but I'll try to believe that his wife made him do this.

    OMGWTFBBQSAUCE i hate peta..... go away you stupid idiots that put people out of work. and duff why are you doing this?

    OK. I did some research because I have nothing better to do. Seal hunting (or sealing) is primarily done by Inuits and can represent up to a third of their annual income. They use either guns or a special type of club with a pick called the hakapik to kill the animal. Most recent quotas I could find: The total allowable catch for 2008 is set by the Canadian government to 275,000 harp seals, (the quota include 2,000 seals for personal seal hunting, and 4,950 seals for the Aboriginal seal hunt,) 8,200 hooded seals and 12,000 grey seals. Also: The commercial hunting of infant harp seals (whitecoats) and infant hooded seals (bluebacks) was banned in 1987 under pressure from animal rights groups. Now seals may only be killed once they have started molting (from 12 to 15 days of age) as this coincides with the time when they are abandoned by their mothers. New rule: A new rule in the Marine Mammal Regulations for 2008, require hunters to slit the seal's main arteries under its flippers, after clubbing or shooting a seal.[9] The European Union recommended to add this rule, in a report released in December 2007.[10] This is to prevent the seal from being skinned alive and having to withstand that pain. International buyers: The pelts and oil are sold to buyers in Norway, Russia, and China. From Wikipedia, on the only report commissioned by neither the Canadian government nor anti-sealing groups: In 2005, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) commissioned the Independent Veterinarians Working Group Report. With reference to video evidence, the report states: "Perception of the seal hunt seems to be based largely on emotion, and on visual images that are often difficult even for experienced observers to interpret with certainty. While a hakapik strike on the skull of a seal appears brutal, it is humane if it achieves rapid, irreversible loss of consciousness leading to death." Conclusion: The Canadian government could limit seal hunting to Inuit population and enforce tighter quotas. The Inuit population should diversify their economy more. PETA should stop misinforming people.

    Id rather club an entire colony of seals and possibly a few whales to prevent myself from seeing him naked.

    I was just wondering whats with the hate towards PETA? I'm not trying to be a dick, just generally interested. I'm not in the US so I don't know, but it's odd how a charitibe orginisation has got so much flak from people.

    this is stupid.....a rockstar gets to go nude for a cause and gets applauded by some. I go nude for a cause and get sent to jail for a month.....I've given up on the US legal system..... But in all seriousness, does this even qualify as news? Was there not enough that we have to hear about a musician exposing themselves for an ecoterrorist organization?

    the only real famous female ROCK musicians I can think of right now are the older ones and Orianthi. So unless you wanna see a Blondie, Pat Benatar, and No Doubt PETA campaign, I'd be careful of what you wish for... haha

It's just making optimal use of a killed animal so that it's death was not in vain. Animals that are killed for fur on the other hand often die in a cruel way and the rest of their body is usually left to rot.
    Implying that killing cows isn't cruel.

    How, you guys posting nasty comments about how this made you want to buy fur coats and kill baby seals are sooooo cool and sexy and evil... Can you please teach me how to become as irreverent and outrageous as you?

    Don't hate Duff, his wife probably made him do this... I also don't mind seeing her naked, her body is pretty nice.

    Pahaha. I'm surprised Duff's supporting PETA, he's one of the last people I'd suspect of being vegetarian and it's pretty much impossible to work with PETA without them forcing it on you every 5 minutes.

    unfortunately, duff has no boobs... and he's a dude, not a chick... so what's the point? Nice one, PETA, you're good at throwing money away, just another proof that PETA is a joke.

    ProgJazzMath : Maybe the Red Hot Chili Peppers can do their own ad against Peta, whilst wearing squirrel fur socks around their penises. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    As soon as I see a picture of his wife naked, I will be ready to make an informed decision about this issue.
