Since Kanye West’s recent social media outbursts, several companies including Adidas and JP Morgan Chase have severed ties with him over his anti-Semitic sentiments
CALABASAS, CALIFORNIA: Known officially simply as “Ye,” rapper Kanye West thrives on controversy. As he walked out of the premiere of Candace Owen’s new documentary on Wednesday night, West spoke to Page Six about the multiple companies that have branded him following his recent outbursts on social media. These companies included Adidas and JPMorgan Chase.
His critics claim Kanye intentionally insults people to get attention for himself and his music. After all, any attention is better than none. Anything that gets your name in the newspaper. West’s anti-Semitic comments over the weekend led to his dismissal from JP Morgan Chase.

Kanye posted a snap of the discussion with Diddy from their text exchange on Instagram, in which he said, “This isn’t a game affecting me.” After a short time, he was unable to access his account. West then took to Twitter, where he said: “I’m a little tired tonight but when I wake up I’m going to die. The funny thing is I can’t actually be an anti-Semite because black people are actually Jews too. You toyed with me and tried to blackmail anyone who opposed your agenda.” Even that account was inaccessible to him after that.
“Hey, if you denounce someone for doing bad business, that means you’re anti-Semitic. I’m glad to have crossed the line of that idea so we can talk openly about things like getting fired by a bank,” the 45-year-old told the Page Six photographer, before calling himself “the richest black man in American history called. A passing truck interrupted West, 45, as he spoke specifically about JP Morgan Chase. He then decided to “speak at another time.”
Owens explained Oct. 12 that JP Morgan gave Chase West until November to find a new bank to house its multi-billion dollar Yeezy brand. “I was told there was no official reason but they also sent this letter to confirm that he has until the end of November to find another location for the Yeezy empire,” she tweeted along with one Photo of the message.
In August, West began speaking out against the brand, claiming he was frustrated with the company’s alleged decision-making regarding their relationship without consulting him. Following the controversy surrounding West’s White Lives Matter jersey, Adidas said last week that their relationship with the rapper was “under scrutiny”. The company announced in a statement Thursday, per CNBC, “Following repeated efforts to resolve the situation privately, we have made the decision to review the partnership.” The statement continued, “We will continue to co-manage the current product of this one.” Period.” Kanye responded on Instagram, writing, “F-K ADIDAS I AM ADIDAS ADIDAS RAFFET AND STEALING MY DESIGNS.”
