Gilbert Arenas helps PeTA give away fur coats. What the...


Here's the WTF? Story of the Day:
Agent Suspect Zero Gilbert Arenas is keeping busy during his gun-related suspension from the NBA by helping PeTA distribute fur coats to women in need.
Yes, you just read that.
It does seem odd for the most notorious animal rights group to be giving away fur coats. But these coats were "all donated by people who bought them, then had a change of heart and wanted to discard them for ethical reasons." PeTA turns around and donates them to homeless or people otherwise in need to stay warm in the winter.
Arenas' involvement with PeTA began earlier in the current NBA season before the locker room incident involving himself, Wizards teammate Javaris Crittenton, and a couple of firearms.They have continued to support him after the Wizards virtually wiped any trace of his existence from the Verizon Center, and Adidas dropped him as a sponsor.
"It's just like anything. When something happens, everyone flees away," Arenas said. "So I already knew all that was going to happen. But PETA, they stayed behind me, they stayed with the cause, and that's the reason I came."
The best thing that can be said about Arenas' situation is that he's making a good use of it.
