Anti-Semiticism comment – Kanye West escorted out of Sketchers office in LA
Kanye West’s surprising visit to Shoe brand Sketchers has led to more embarrassing moments for the rapper.
The shoe brand said on Thursday that it escorted Ye out of his corporate offices in Los Angeles after he showed up “uninvited.”
The company distanced itself from the rapper, saying it had no intention of working with him.
It could be recalled that Kanye West lost the German sportswear Adidas after his uncut social media anti-Semitic posts.
According to Sketcher, the rapper was escorted out of its office after he showed up with a crew and started filming without authorization.
In the statement, Sketchers said he was escorted out after a brief conversation, adding, “We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech.”
“We again stress that West showed up unannounced and uninvited.”
Kanye West controversial post has hit his income as his position dropped in Forbes magazine’s list of billionaires.
Forbes estimates that Ye lost his position as his net worth dropped from $1.5bn to $400m.
His latest remark is not going away as a known entertainment talent agent Ari Emmanuel called on film industries not to work with the rapper over his recent anti-semitic comments.
In response, Kanye West disclosed that he had lost 2 billion dollars in one day, referring to the loss of Adidas support.
The rapper posted on his Instagram post, “Ari Emmanuel, I lost 2 billion dollars in one day, and I’m still alive. This is a love speech. I still love you. God still loves you The money is not who I am. The people is who I am.”
The anti-semitic comment was the last straw for Adidas as it had put Ye’s product under review since last month after the rapper wore the “White Lives Matter” T-shirt to Paris Fashion Week.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
