Kanye West is once again the center of controversy for the second time in a short time.
The American rapper Kanye West appeared short time ago at a fashion show at the fashion week in Paris wearing a t-shirt on which you could read “White lives matter”. It was not well received due to that this is a slogan used by white supremacists against the anti-racism movement in response to the “Black lives matter”.
Ashe wants more attention, Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband after two years without using Twitter has returned in the worst possible way. This Sunday he decided to publish an anti-Semitic message through this social network. Due to this, Twitter did not delay in deleting the tweet and blocking his account since the phrases he used go against the policy of this social network.
West posted on this platform a message full of hatred towards the Jews in which he said that they have been playing with him and trying to exclude anyone who opposes his ideas. Still the rapper explained that he because he is a black man could not be anti-Semitic since his race is considered also Jewish.
At the time of the publication of the tweet this social network was filled with criticism towards West in which even political leaders and an organization that fights anti-Semitism, the Anti-Defamation League, participated.
This has not been the first time that he has an account blocked for this type of phrases since Instagram had already blocked it earlier for another antisemitic comment in which he commented that Sean Combs, also rapper, was being controlled by Jews.
Twitter has not been the only one who has turned against the now known by the name YE. This Tuesday the brand Adidas has officially announced that it will not have any link with the rapper immediately due to his anti-Semitic comments. In addition to those already mentioned above, Kanye also pronounced his stance in the podcast Drink Champs, something that the sports brand did not like at all. After these events Adidas decided that although it estimates losing 246 million dollars in its sales next quarter, the best thing is to stop with the production and sales of the brand Yeezy, which was created by the designer.
Vogue, GAP and Balenciaga have joined in breaking all ties they had with Kanye. For example, GAP decided not to distribute any of Kim Kardashian’s ex products or open any stores under his name. Even that, the most important bond that the producer has lost is the one of belonging to the famous talent agency CAA (Creative Artist Agency), who no longer wants him as a client.
Brands that no longer want to have any relationship with Kanye West are on the rise. How many more will join to cancel the rapper?
