Kanye West

Theraflu In a Funk

Over Yeezy's New Song

4/5/2012 3:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Theraflu is speaking ill of the new Kanye West song
Theraflu is speaking ill of Kanye West's new tune, "Theraflu."

A company rep tells TMZ, "We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner."

Kanye named the song after the cold medicine because he's so cold to his enemies they need a big dose.

As you probably know by now, the song reveals Kanye's love for his new GF, Kim Kardashian.

Theraflu reps did not say they would sue the singer, but their statement includes buzz words -- image and likeness -- that are often used in legal proceedings.

And this is priceless. In the statement, the Theraflu rep adds, "Theraflu is an over-the-counter product used to help relieve cold and flu symptoms that millions of consumers rely on."

Nothing to sneeze at ...

I wonder how much they will try to sell the wedding exclusive for? If you can't sing without an auto tune you shouldn't be in the business.

Dear Theraflu....now your product is associated with a fat azz famewhore and a douchebag instead of colds and flu. Good luck with that!

What a douche bag. Always trying to attract attention and making an ass of himself. A legend in his own mind. I hope they do sue him.
What this guy needs besides a kick in the ass, is a self obsessed, obnoxious, attention ho just like him to keep him busy...someone to pee on perhaps...oh wait...

The Clash once had a song called Inoculated City and it included the audio from a TV commercial for 2000 Flushes ("and flushing sure beats brushing"). Head of company upset and I think they had to re-issue the album with the ad taken out. On YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVbP01Pqfq0
