New Kanye West music means new controversy. This time, the controversy-riddled rapper is facing criticism from Theraflu and PETA over his new song, “Theraflu.”

“Someone tell PETA my mink is dragging on the floor,” West raps in his new song.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals took offense.

“What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings,” PETA reps told the Wall Street Journal. “He’s a great musician but doesn’t seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes.”

The rapper isn’t getting much love from Theraflu, either, because the song, in which he confesses his love for Kim Kardashian, suggests that Kanye is so cold to his enemies they need a dose of the cold medicine.

“We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner,” the company’s reps told TMZ.

What do you think of the song? Is it offensive?

    I’d listened to the song several times before almost all of the videos got taken down off YouTube. I didn’t notice it because I was to busy laughing at the Kris Humphries line

    While Kanye and his songs are not exactly friendly or respectful to many people, PETA is a joke and I can’t them seriously every time they complain – they go crazy over every single thing and kill more than they save.

      Agreed.  Hate Kanye, but I think I’m starting to hate PETA even more.

      PETA is the most annoying organization ever.

    “Kanye angers PETA, Theraflu in new song.” 
    of course he did. i wasn’t able to view the video, but i can’t imagine what kanye said was so vile as to harm either brand. i’m sure if you looked back at some of his  previous songs he said inflammatory things then too. it’s only since the taylor swift incident that people are actually taking the time to call him on it. i’m mostly just tired of kanye. he’s built his brand around being an @$$ and i’m over it.
