While the debut of Kanye West’s “Theraflu” mostly has the world in the starry-eyed thrall of his budding romance with Kim Kardashian, not everyone has been changed irrevocably by finally knowing what love is. The black, shriveled hearts at Theraflu, for example, who do not appreciate Kanye’s assertion that their product is an acceptable remedy for colds brought on by the embarrassment of Kanye being better at talking about clothes and hollering at hos, which is not one of the FDA-approved uses for Theraflu. “We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner," the company said in a statement to TMZ, with the implicit reminder that Theraflu is for use only as directed, and not as a means of shaming your rap enemies. The song also drew the ire of PETA for that line in which Kanye taunts the organization by dragging his mink on the floor and presumably also for his mistreatment of Kris Humphries, but everybody already knew PETA would be mad, therefore so what.
