Adidas Avoids Criticizing Kanye West for His Slavery Remarks

Good Morning Britain Adidas Avoids Criticizing Kanye West for His Slavery Remarks

On Tuesday morning, Kanye appeared on TMZ Live, where he chatted with TMZ founder Harvey Levin and the news outlet's staff about his love of President Donald Trump - "That's my boy", he said of the POTUS - before veering into a discussion about slavery. "Kanye has been and is a very important part of our strategy and has been a fantastic creator, and that's where I'm going to leave it". Before I decide, I'm going to step back and give it a little time to see exactly where he's going.

West's "Gold Digger" collaborator Jamie Foxx weighed in on Ye's recent appearance on "TMZ live" and actually blamed the gossip site for giving him a platform to speak his mind, knowing that he would receive a lot of backlash from it.

As tweets piled up and West's statements became more radical - to the point where his wife Kim Kardashian had to confirm that he's not having another mental breakdown - it became clear to fans that this was no album-rollout stunt, but rather the rapper's new reality. According to him, "When you hear about slavery for 400 years ... for 400 years?"

I saw the comment as you have seen it. "You were there for 400 years and it was all of y'all?"

West has repeatedly come under fire in recent weeks after praising Trump, criticising Obama, meeting with controversial right-wing pundit Candace Owens and, earlier this week, making controversial comments about slavery.

These tweets have since been deleted.

Adidas has partnered with West since 2013, in what has been one of its most significant business relationships with a non-athlete. Also (I can't believe I have to say this): "Slavery was far from a choice". It's like we're mentally in prison.

Rapper T.I. has defended Kanye West's recent freakish behaviour, insisting the musician is "working through his own personal journey".

"The statement was an example of free thought". He hasn't said why he supports Trump and frankly it does not seem like he knows much about politics. We are both dragon energy.

But the rapper said he admired the real estate mogul's audacity to run - and West himself has indicated, with an unclear level of seriousness, that he plans to seek the White House in 2024. Owens is also the person who the rapper acknowledged on Twitter last week and said he likes the way she thinks.
