Mr T Dumps The Bling
Former THE A-Team star Mr T has dump his medallions and gold jewellery after witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina on America's Gulf Coast last year (AUG05). The actor, real name LAWRENCE TETO, is a devout Christian and felt it was selfish to display his wealth when so many people were left without a roof over their heads. He explains, "As a spiritual man, I felt it would be a sin against my God for me to wear all that gold again because I spent a lot of time with the less fortunate. "I saw some, I call it 'sorry celebrities'. They'll go down there and hook up with the people to take a photo-op. "I said, 'How disgusting.' If you're not going to go down there with a cheque and a hammer and a nail to help the people, don't go down there."
