Numerous companies have severed ties with Kanye West in recent weeks due to his controversial comments and unpredictable behavior.

There has been a backlash against rapper Kanye West in recent weeks due to anti-semitic comments he made. Adidas, which previously collaborated with Mr. West (before he legally changed his name to Ye), is the most recent company to sever ties with the rapper.

A spokesperson for Adidas told Newsweek that the company does not condone antisemitism or any other form of bigotry. The agreement reportedly cost $1.5 billion, according to Forbes. Even more, companies have severed ties with the rapper as a result of his bizarre behavior and comments.

How Ye Paved The Path Of His Own Downfall

He was spotted at the concert sporting a “White Lives Matter” T-shirt. In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, many people saw the slogan as a fascist rallying cry.

White Lives Matter is classified as a neo-Nazi organization by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

How Ye Paved The Path Of His Own Downfall

On October 8 of that year (2022), he made offensive anti-Semitic posts on Twitter and Instagram.

Ye had previously written that he was going to soon go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE,” but he took that post down.

The same tweet also included the following: “You guys have toyed with me and tried to blackball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

Ye took to Instagram before releasing the comment, accusing Sean “Diddy” Combs of being influenced by “the Jewish people.”

Ye’s post was condemned by the Anti-Defamation League, which called it “deeply troubling, dangerous, and antisemitic, period.”

When considering his platform, “there is no excuse for his propagation of white supremacist slogans and classic antisemitism about Jewish power,” the League said.

Accordingly, Ye was banned from using Twitter, and Meta limited his access to Instagram.

Kim Kardashian, one of the most followed celebrities on Instagram and formerly married to Ye, also issued a statement condemning his remarks in the wake of the uproar over his posts.

Using hateful language is never acceptable and must never be justified. In a tweet and Instagram post, Kardashian wrote, “I stand together with the Jewish community and call for the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.” She did not mention Ye by name.

What Did Kanye West Have To Say?

Mr. West’s tweet from October 9 has caused quite a stir. The tweet read, “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” an apparent reference to a US military readiness code called DEFCON. Twitter deleted the tweet, but the rapper did not retract it.

What Did Kanye West Have To Say

Even more controversially, Mr. West, a Black artist now known as Ye, caused a stir by misappropriating the slogan “Black Lives Matter” by wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt during Paris Fashion Week.

Ye later claimed on a podcast that George Floyd died from fentanyl and that a police officer’s knee “wasn’t even on his neck like that.” This was on October 15. The daughter of Mr. Floyd, whose murder in 2020 sparked nationwide protests against racism and police brutality, has sued him for the remark.

Has He Apologised?

Mr. West hasn’t offered a sincere apology. The rapper expressed his regret for the people his “death con 3” tweet offended in an interview with Piers Morgan last week.

Ye initially said he was “absolutely not” sorry for writing the comment, but the anchor persisted, and eventually, he apologized.

The singer “doesn’t believe” in the term “antisemitism,” he said on October 15.

Final Words

Anti-Semitic white supremacists in Los Angeles reportedly unfurled a banner reading “Kanye is right about the Jews” after Ye’s comments and actions. The group is called the Goyim Defense League. The Nazi salute was allegedly performed by some of the group members.

Quite a few A-list stars in Hollywood have specifically named Ye as the cause of this.

Sarah Silverman, a stand-up comic, posted a photo of the hate group raising their banner and captioned it, “Lemme guess: still not time to get scared.”

Any expression of anti-semitism is intolerable. Specifically, face-to-face. Online. It’s irrelevant where. Reese Witherspoon tweeted, “I completely understand why my Jewish friends/colleagues are scared for their families. This is hate, and it is unacceptable.” These are terrifying times.
