Skechers, the American shoe company, says Kanye ‘Ye’ West was escorted out of its office after showing up “unannounced”.
The shoe company disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday.
According to the statement, West and “his party” were taken out of the company’s corporate office in Los Angeles for “arriving unannounced and without invitation”.
Skechers also condemned the rapper’s anti-semitic comments, adding that it “has no intention of working” with him.
“Skechers USA, Inc. (NYSE:SKX), The Comfort Technology Company™, stated Kanye West – also referred to as 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,” the statement reads.
“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.
“The company would like to again stress that West showed up unannounced and uninvited to Skechers corporate offices.”
It is believed that the controversial rapper was planning to get Skechers to work with him on his next footwear.
The brand is owned and operated by Robert Greenburg, who is Jewish.
The development is coming at about the same time when Adidas announced it has ended its partnership with the rapper.
The music mogul has continued to receive widespread backlash since he put out several anti-semitic rants on social media platforms.
The rapper alleged that the Jews controlled Hollywood and vowed to “go Defcon 3” on the Jewish people — apparently referring to the military readiness condition.
