PETA Responds to Kanye West’s New Song
Name-dropping Anna Wintour isn’t the only way Kanye West is raising eyebrows with his song “Theraflu.”
The brand-new song also gives a shout out to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals—though not in a good way. “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor,” Kanye raps.

As one would expect, PETA is not exactly thrilled with the track.
“What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings,” the organization’s senior vice president Dan Mathews said a statement 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.”
