Just a day after losing his lucrative Yeezy brand partnership with Adidas due to anti-Semetic rhetoric, Ye formerly known as Kanye West didn’t waste anytime looking for a new partner. According to reports Kanye West allegedly showed up to Skechers corporate headquarters located in Manhattan Beach, CA; in an attempt to speak with executives to strike up a new distribution deal for his Yeezy brand.
Ye allegedly went into the building uninvited hoping to pitch his brand, only to be quickly escorted out .
TMZ claims a rep for Skechers reached out confirming the alleged incident did occur.
Ye “arrived unannounced and without invitation at one of Skechers’ corporate offices in Los Angeles. Considering Ye was engaged in unauthorized filming, two Skechers executives escorted him and his party from the building after a brief conversation,” a Sketchers representative said.
“Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West. We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech. Again, West showed up unannounced and uninvited to Skechers corporate offices,” the spokesperson continued.
Unfortunately, for Ye he has lost nearly all his business partnerships due to his hateful statements towards the Jewish community. In the past week Vogue, Gap, Adidas, Balenciaga, and more have cut ties with the rapper. It’s gotten so bad that even TJ Maxx has rejected Ye’s Yeezy brand. The most interesting part is Skechers company is owed by a Jewish family.
