    Mr. T Sheds Gold After Katrina Destruction


    Former The A-Team star Mr. T has dumped his medallions and gold jewelry after witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast last year.

    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 check and a hammer and a nail to help the people, don't go down there."
