Kanye West has made multiple antisemitic comments in recent weeks, causing widespread outrage. It finally led to Balenciaga ending its relationship with the rapper. Now, Ye is speaking out in response to the brand’s decision to drop him.
Ye answered questions in front of a paparazzi group after leaving his daughter North West’s basketball game Friday. The rapper said Balenciaga cutting ties with him doesn’t affect him because they weren’t paying him much.
The Chicago-native rapper said Balenciaga is just trying to “score points,” before continuing to level accusations against LeBron James, Maverick Carter, and N.O.R.E. The rapper believes they are all guilty of it.
I think people just try to score points
Balenciaga and its parent company Kering initially remained silent when Ye debuted a “White Lives Matter” at his Paris Fashion Show. However, after constant pressure from the public the brand dropped him. Even Adidas is reviewing its business deal with the rapper.
