On Wednesday, Kanye West released what is believed to be the lead single,”Theraflu,” from his still untitled, upcoming solo album and his has ruffled some feathers in the process as PETA and Theraflu are both seemingly unhappy with the record.
Yesterday, senior vice president Dan Mathews of PETA lashed out at Kanye West for the line “Someone tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor,” as he said:
“What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings. He’s a great musician but doesn’t seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes. We keep hoping that one day he’ll find his heart and join evolved style icons, including Russell Simmons, Pink and Natalie Portman, who have dropped animal skins.”
Now today, a Theraflu rep give a statement of their own disapproving the record:
“We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner. Theraflu is an over-the-counter product used to help relieve cold and flu symptoms that millions of consumers rely on.”
