Kanye West previously accused Adidas of stealing his designs and targeted several company members over the weekend. Ye had similar complaints about Gap. Kanye recently seemingly escalated his feud with Adidas Senior Vice President/General Manager Daniel Cherry III.
Kanye West and Donda appeared to have made a doll of Cherry wearing his signature fedora hat in a video circulating on social media. The students of Donda Academy lifted the effigy while others shouted “he’s finished” and gave a thumbs down. Another individual may be heard exclaiming, “Damn, DC!”
Ye looked on giving his approval to the finished product with “Christian Dior Denim Flow” booming through the venue’s speakers. Donda affiliate Justin LaBoy and Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson were also there, all wearing matching Black YEEZY threads. In a series of Instagram posts over the weekend, Ye continued to bash the former DC Comics General Manager.
Hi guys it’s the face of unemployment aka the face Wishing everyone a happy day off 2mrw I’ll be in retirement Which is a nice way of saying I’ll be unemployed. Daniel Cherry Pop I knew by the Jean jacket you was wearing when we first met that we could never truly be friends.
While Kanye vents his rage on Cherry, he announced on Monday night (September 5) that he had reached a settlement with Adidas and that his battle with the apparel giant was over for the time being.
I COULD HEAR THE JOY IN MY TEAMS VOICES TODAY. ADIDAS DON’T WANT NO MORE SMOKE. THE MOVIE CREDIT’S ARE ROLLING. THIS WAR WASN’T ABOUT MONEY.
IT WAS ABOUT CONTROL OF OUR FAMILIES. OF OUR BUSINESSES. OF OUR STORY. OF OUR VOICE. I GAVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO SETTLE THIS QUIETLY. NOW IT’S TIME FOR GAP 🙂
Kanye gained the support of various Hip Hop compatriots, including Diddy, Irv Gotti, Swizz Beatz, and others, for his public evisceration of Adidas. Let’s see what more Kanye does to disparage Adidas and Gap. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
