PETA and Kanye got beef…and PETA doesn't eat beef!
In his most recently released song, Theraflu, Ye takes a jab at PETA, rapping "Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor."
The folks for the ethical treatment of animals did NOT take this well at all!
Senior Vice President Dan Mathews said the following in a statement:
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.
Harsh. Them is some fighting words!
This isn't the first tofu-snafu PETA and Kanye have had. Back in 2010, Ye and then gal pal Amber Rose sported long fur coats during Paris Fashion Week.
We'll see if this battle continues!
