TLC's Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas is shedding her clothes and donning tiger-stripes in support of animal rights. 

Chilli has teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to take a stand against animal cruelty in the circus.  The ad campaign features photos of Chilli wearing nothing but tiger-striped body paint while locked in a cage. 

The ad calls for people to boycott the circus because of the "beaten, lonely, and abused" animals. 

In a video statement, Chilli points out that there's "so much cruelty behind the scenes" of the circus.  She adds that people need "to be aware of what's really going on."
