It looks like not everyone is a fan of the Los Angeles Clippers' new mascot, Chuck the Condor.

Kanye West, in fact, dislikes the mascot so much that he wants to help the team with the creative process in designing a new one. Seriously.

Imagine the possibilities.

While some people may side with Yeezy, Chuck the Condor doesn't like the threat of extinction. That's why he was saddened by West's latest tweet.

If you recall, the New Orleans Pelicans gave their mascot midseason cosmetic surgery a couple of years back because the original had earned such negative reviews. Who's to say the Clippers can't do the same thing if enough people side with Yeezy?

A battle between Kanye and Chuck the Condor may require the Internet to take sides, so feel free to come up with hashtags to show support for your camp. Perhaps one of the hashtags will catch on and resolve this situation quickly.
