For many Hip Hop fans, Kanye West can do no wrong when it comes to music, but one activist group is taking issue with the rapper’s latest song “Theraflu.” Animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) spoke out against the G.O.O.D. Music star over the song’s hook, on which he raps, “Someone tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor.”
In a recent report from MTV News, PETA spoke out Yeezy’s lyrics and storied penchant for fur. The group’s senior vice president Dan Mathews released a statement against the rapper, calling him a “caveman” and pleading him to join their cause.
“What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings,” said. Mathews. “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.”
