Kanye West escorted from Skechers office, shoe brand says

Rapper charged with ‘unauthorized filming’ after unannounced visit to company’s Los Angeles office.

Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, was escorted from the Skechers corporate office in Los Angeles after showing up unannounced and uninvited, according to the shoe company.

Two company executives removed Ye and several people after the rapper participated in an “unauthorized recording” at the office, the company said in a statement Wednesday local time.

Skechers, the world’s third-biggest shoe brand by revenue, said it had no intention of working with Ye and did not tolerate anti-Semitism and other hate speech amid controversy over the rapper’s inflammatory comments about Jewish people.

“We condemn his recent divisive comments and do not tolerate anti-Semitism or any other form of hate speech,” the company said. “The company would like to emphasize again that West showed up unannounced and uninvited at Skechers corporate offices.”

The incident comes after Adidas ended its association with Ye on Tuesday over “unacceptable, hateful and dangerous” comments about Jews, despite the rapper’s claim that the sportswear company could not leave him for making anti-semantic comments.

The German sportswear giant scrapped their partnership, which was worth an estimated $1.5 billion, after the rapper was suspended from Twitter and Instagram earlier this month for making anti-Semitic posts. The collapse of the deal stripped Ye of his billionaire status, according to Forbes, reducing his net worth to $400 million.

Clothing brand Gap also announced it will remove the rapper’s Yeezy Gap product line from its stores and close YeezyGap.com, while Footlocker has pulled Yeezy sneakers from its shelves.
