Kanye West has attracted the fury of Jews from all around the world for his non-stop antisemitic comments. The rapper recently added more fuel to the fire after his appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored, where he wished death on the Jews that have wronged him. David Schwimmer is also taking a stand against Ye.
Friends star, David Schwimmer, who is of Jewish origin, first spoke out against Ye a week ago. With Balenciaga now officially ending its relationship with the rapper, Schwimmer wants Adidas to do the same.
Balenciaga and its parent company Kering initially remained silent when Ye debuted a “White Lives Matter” at his Paris Fashion Show. However, with the constant pressure from the public, the brand decided to sever its ties with the rapper.
Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist
“Thing about me and Adidas is like, I can literally say antisemitic sh*t and they can’t drop me, I can say antisemitic things and Adidas can’t drop me. Now what?,” Kanye said during his appearance Drink Champs podcast.
Schwimmer took this segment from the interview and shared it to his Instagram Story, urging the brand to drop the rapper. In a subsequent post, he invited his followers to join him and the Anti-Defamation League in demanding that Adidas end its relationship with the Donda artist once and for all. He has also started a petition on Change.org for this.
Over the years, every time Kanye has made headlines for controversies, Adidas has continued to do business with him. However, earlier this month, the company said that it is reviewing its business deal with the Chicago-native rapper and his Yeezy brand. Only time will tell if the brand will drop the artist that has brought them billions in annual revenue. Check out the posts below.
