The name of his medicinally inspired track, Theraflu, is now Way Too Cold!

A couple of weeks ago, Kanye West released Theraflu, which not only ignited the Kimye’ romance we so voraciously devour, but also sparked backlash from the actual producers of the medicine.

They were NOT happy with the unauthorized use of their product’s name.

‘Ye has FINALLY addressed this

Facebook Threatening To Sue Mark Zuckerberg…Sort Of

mark zuckerberg vs mark zuckerberg

Well, this is awkward!

Earlier this month, Israeli businessman Rotem Guez legally changed his name to Mark Zuckerberg, which did NOT sit well with the real Zuckerberg.

Now, Facebook is threatening to sue the Israeli Zuckerberg over a company he created called Like Store, which "claims to be able to get Facebook 'likes' for official brand pages."

Here's what Facebook's cease-desist letter against the new Zuckerberg says:

"Your continued activities violate Facebook's terms, and are illegal. Facebook demands that you immediately stop your activities."

Let's hope they're able to get this all figured out soon! Perhaps Facebook can assist the new Zuckerberg with finding some proper mental health care, which it sounds like he needs!

Team Zuckerberg or Team Zuckerberg???
