Kanye West released a new song Theraflu this week, and has has upset animal rights activists at PETA once again by making fun of them in the lyrics!
The rapper has been in trouble with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, after he insisted on wearing a real fur coat.
He has now provoked the people of PETA once again by mentioning them in his new song, rapping, "Someone tell PETA my mink (coat) is draggin' on the floor."
PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews has slammed West for the quip, but admits he still hopes the star will eventually change his mind and renounce fur.
In a statement Mathews revealed, "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."
