Leona Lewis speaks out against Kanye West 'Way Too Cold' song that references fur

Another person is speaking out against Kanye West’s offensive song “Way Too Cold” and this time it’s animal activist Leona Lewis.

In one of his most recent singles, West references his love of fur. The one line reads, “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor.”

Well, Lewis is not too happy about it and took to Twitter to express how offensive the song truly is.

“Heard that awful Kanye W song talking about minx dragging on the floor. What an awful thing to be proud of! I take all my love for him back!”she tweeted.

About five minutes later, she tweeted an adorable picture of a mink, “Lil minx <3 http://instagr.am/p/KU-524u27N/.”

In addition to making headlines for her chart-topping songs, Lewis is always reaching out to the public about protecting animals, so this really comes as no surprise.

When the single first dropped PETA also had some words to share with West. “What’s draggin’ on the floor is Kanye’s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings,” PETA’s Senior Vice President Dan Mathews said.

In addition to angering animal activists, West also had to change the title of the song. It was originally titled “Theraflu,” but the cold and flu company made objections, the Business Standard reports.

West seems to have no regrets about his song or for wearing fur.
