PETA is blasting Kanye West for calling them out with a provocative lyric in “Theraflu.”
In the song, West raps, “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor.”
Now the animal rights organization is hitting back, releasing a statement to Gossip Cop in which they tell West exactly what they think of his use of fur.
“What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings,” declares PETA.
The group continues, ”He’s a great musician but doesn’t seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes.”
PETA adds, ”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.”
Coincidentally, “Theraflu” also refers to West’s love for Kim Kardashian — whom he’s said to be dating — and who was famously “flour bombed” by an animal rights activist in March, leading her sister Khloe to renounce PETA.
It’s a small world.
