Theraflu Company Releases Statement About Kanye West’s “TheraFlu” Song

Fans might be amped about Kanye West’s latest song, Theraflu,” which hit the net yesterday (April 5), but the cold medicine company the song is named after isn’t too happy.

Theraflu released a statement to TMZ about ‘Ye’s title choice, expressing their displeasure with it.

“We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner,” a company rep told the entertainment site.

Although Yeezy named the song after Theraflu, which helps fight colds, he uses the title to reference how “cold” he is towards his enemies.

As previously reported, Kanye revealed his love for reality star Kim Kardashian on the track, rapping, “I admit I fell in love with Kim, ‘Round the same time she fell in love with him / Well that’s cool baby girl, do your thing, lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team.” (Jay-Z is a part-owner of the New Jersey Nets, the team Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband Kris Humphries plays for.)

Kim appeared on NBC’s Today Show today and said she liked Kanye’s song, adding that the two have been friends for a long time and that she’s excited about what the future might hold for them. And while she didnt flat out say they were dating, People Magazine reports they indeed are in the early stages of a relationship as the two were recently seen leaving a movie theater in New York City and then on a lunch date on Thursday (April 5).

There is no word yet on whether Theraflu is planning on suing Kanye West. —Gina Montana

    Man Theraflu should take this as free advertisement. But i would admit that whenever anyone needs a little change in their pocket they should check through anything with kanye name on it and sue him.

    he doesnt have the power to drop the their second best player— humphries should sue his bitchass for workplace violations for kanye even insinuating that jayz would be willing to fire him over some personal romace bullshit…

    and as for kanye–get the fuck off mase’s dick tryin to rap his lines like you wrote them–guess he learned that from jay to huh??

    it still kills me every time i hear 99 probs that jay had the nerve to spit 4 full fuckin bars of bun b’s shit… not quote it, but actually spit it like he wrote it with no mention of bun.. to this day 99% of the public thinks jay wrote that shit …and dont even get me started of the biggie shit he spits…

        The only thing that freedom of speech guarentees is that the government can’t arrest us or force us to silence when it comes to controvesial matters.

        People get sued for saying reckless shit all the time. In order to win such a suit you have to prove that the person was negligent in making baseless statements knowing they were baseless which in affect hurt that person’s reputation causing them to loose money.

        my dude, you being 16 i’d suggest you stay in school.
