As far as rap-song insults go, Kanye West's lyric, “Someone tell PETA my mink is dragging on the floor," seems fairly tame. In true rap-battle fashion, however, PETA has fired back with some choice words of their own—and a pun, to boot! A representative from the organization told the Wall Street Jounral, "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." Apparently, Kanye's claim, "Talking about clothes I'll motherf**king embarrass you" goes both ways.
