Kanye West, a musician and fashion designer, entered Skechers’ corporate offices in Los Angeles on Wednesday “unannounced and without invitation,” and executives escorted him out.
The footwear company stated in a statement following the event that it “had no intention of collaborating with West” and that the musician, who is now known as Ye, was involved in “unauthorized filming.”
After a “short dialogue,” “he and his companions” were expelled from the building, the business stated.
The remarks from Skechers came a day after Adidas discontinued their lengthy partnership with Ye as a result of a slew of antisemitic remarks Ye made in recent weeks.
Skechers stated, “We do not allow antisemitism or any other type of hate speech and we deplore his recent inflammatory statements.
Ye has been circulating antisemitic conspiracies on social media and in interviews.
Additionally, he caused controversy earlier this month by displaying T-shirts at Paris Fashion Week with the slogan “White Lives Matter,” which is connected to white nationalists.
Ye has gotten more and more alone as many brands turn away from him.
Gap is taking urgent action to remove Yeezy Gap goods from its shops and shut down YeezyGap.com after terminating its partnership with Ye in September.
Ye is supposedly no longer a billionaire due to the breakup of his lucrative Adidas contract and the breakup of Balenciaga’s relationship with him.
He is reportedly no longer represented by his longstanding talent agency CAA.
Following this week’s antisemitic occurrences in Los Angeles, some of which clearly referred to Ye’s remarks on Jews, citizens in California joined the chorus of those denouncing Ye’s behavior.
