Rapper Kanye West has changed the name of his new song, Theraflu due to objections from the makers of the cold and flu medicine.
West, 27, has renamed the track and replaced the Theraflu packaging cover art with the image of a plain white bottle, reported TMZ online.
A statement posted on West's website read, "Today, Kanye announces the creative decision to title the track Way Too Cold."
The Theraflu bosses denied any associations with the singer after he debuted the track on April 12, 2012.
"We in no way endorse or approve of the refrences or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner."
Animal rights activists at PETA have also criticised West over the controversial song's lyrics, which include a line about a mink fur coat.
