KANYE WEST & THE GAME SLAMMED BY PETA FOR USING GRAPHIC PHOTO OF SKINNED MONKEY AS ‘EAZY’ ART

Written by on January 17, 2022

As Kanye West continues to make headlines for his daughter’s birthday party snafu, hanging out with purported girlfriend Julia Fox and his divorce from Kim Kardashian, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has a bone to pick with the outspoken rapper.

Not long after Kanye debuted his new song “Eazy” featuring The Game, the animal rights organization issued a statement blasting the duo for using a skinned monkey for the single’s cover art.

“The photo is reminiscent of the monkeys PETA has found, sometimes heads, sometimes hands, sometimes the whole body, in meat markets around the world,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk told Billboard. “It makes it clear that when you remove the fur you can’t miss that there’s a person in there, that they are fellow primates, and do not belong to us to abuse for any purpose, not in laboratories, roadside zoos, movies, or meat markets.”

But Kanye West is used to being the center of controversy, and even The Game was left scratching his head after Ye’s infamous “slavery sounds like a choice” comments in 2018.

As he told Billboard in an email at the time, “Kanye will always be a friend of mine & although I might not necessarily agree with his views on certain topics, that is what separate us as individuals.”

The two linked up for numerous collaborations over the years, including 2006’s “Wouldn’t Get Far” and the Ye-produced “Dreams” off of The Game’s 2005 debut album, The Documentary.

As for “Eazy,” the track also came with a healthy dose of contention when Kanye rapped, “Boujee and unruly, y’all need to do some chores/Rich ass kids, this ain’t yo mama’s house/Climb on your brother’s shoulders, get that top ramen out/God saved me from that crash/Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass (Who?)/And my new bitch bad, I know Illuminati mad.”

The Saturday Night Live actor has been dating Kanye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian in recent months and is believed to be the reason Ye wasn’t allowed into her home for his daughter’s party.
