The bad news about rapper Kanye 'Ye' West (45) don't tear off. Because after the Franconian sports manufacturer Adidas decided in October 2022 to Stop working with Kanye over anti-Semitic remarks , the drama is now entering the second round.
In an anonymous letter to Adidas' executive floor, some formerly high-ranking employees allegedly accused the group of not having acted 'responsibly' when it came to light that Kanye had shared pornographic videos and photos with some employees - including those of ex-wife Kim Kardashian - is said to have shown, according to the 'Rolling Stone'.
The letter went on to say that employees were not adequately protected from the rapper's 'perverse behavior' and that Kanye's employees in particular had to endure 'years of abuse, vulgar tirades and bullying attacks'. The moral compass of the Adidas management was turned off and they ignored both West's behavior and the complaints of their employees.
Adidas now said: 'It is currently not clear whether the allegations made in an anonymous letter are correct. However, we take these allegations very seriously and have decided to immediately launch an independent investigation into the matter to clarify the allegations.”
Already in October 2022 Adidas ended the Partnered with Kanye West because of anti-Semitic statements that the rapper kept dropping. The company therefore does not tolerate hate speech and has decided to stop working with West, according to a statement from Adidas at the time. The production of the 'Yeezy' brand was also stopped immediately and all payments to Once and his companies were stopped. The President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Josef Schuster, had previously called for the contract with West to be terminated. (result)source: vip.de
