German sportswear giant Adidas has ended its business relationship with Kanye “Ye” West after the artist made antisemitic statements and shared conspiracy theories.
In the wake of multiple offensive and controversial interviews, Adidas had said that its distribution deal for Ye’s Yeezy line was “under review.” On Tuesday, the company said: “Adidas does not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech. Ye’s recent comments and actions have been unacceptable, hateful and dangerous, and they violate the company’s values of diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness.”
