PETA Calls Out Kanye West... Again!

Kanye West's new record, "Theraflu," finds the Chicago MC rapping, "Tell PETA my mink is draggin' on the floor." Interestingly enough, when People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals caught word of 'Ye's defiant lyrics, the animal rights group lashed into him with the fervor of a war tested battle MC.

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." The Def Jam rhyme ambassador is currently basking in the glow of controversy after "Theraflu" made headlines for Yeezy's salute to Wiz Khalifa, public display of affection for Kim Kardashian, and dis to ex-Kardashian hubby Kris Humphries.
