If you listened to Kanye West’s pretty damn solid new single, “Theraflu,” you no doubt picked up on some choice lines directed at Kim Kardashian, his haters (as usual), and animal-rights group PETA. That particular bar goes a lil’ something like this: “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor.”
Well, within 24 hours of the track hitting (and exploding) the Internet, PETA has, of course, responded to the remark in an e-mail to XXL. As you might imagine, they’re not too thrilled about it:
“What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings,” said PETA’s Senior Vice President Dan Mathews in a statement sent to XXLMag.com. “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.”
Damn, I wonder what Waka Flocka thinks.
