Howard, whose body is covered in tattoos, also said that he plans more tattoos coming up to Christmas this year.
“Protecting animals is very important to me, and I think speaking out against fur is an amazing cause”, said Howard.
“I would ask those who wear fur whether they know what animal was hurt or killed to produce it and hopefully that would be the end of that conversation.
“I plan on getting a whole back piece [tattoo] running up to Christmas and maybe a couple more on my upper arms and chest.
“I don’t really psyche myself up too much for a game in terms of banging my head against a wall!”
