Ah, so this is what has brought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West together: a shared enemy.
Not long after someone with a connection to PETA and an unhealthy affection for fur tossed flour all over Kardashian, the organization has come out and responded to a taunt from Kanye in his latest song, “Theraflu.”
As you can hear above, West raps at one point in this new track: “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor.”
And, because it just can’t resists any opportunity to make a headline, PETA actually took the bait and replied, via the following statement by Senior Vice President Dan Mathews:
“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.”
Note to PETA: have you seen who Kanye is now dating? We’re pretty sure he no longer cares about his reputation.
