Nowadays, it is quite ordinary for people to wake up with a new headline about Kanye West. The rapper has become notorious for his constant controversies that go all the way wrong. From interrupting Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech to making claims for ex-wife Kim Kardashian, he has made many mistakes all these years. While the biggest blunder brought about by his bizarre stunts was the Twitter tirade about the Jew community.
The moment the rapper made antisemitic remarks on the platform, he faced backlash and got terminated from social media. Adding further to the consequences, all his lucrative deals with brands like Balenciaga, GAP, and Adidas came to an end. However, it seems that the huge Adidas breakup was just the beginning of a shocking revelation, as former employees recently break their silence, condemning Adidas for ignoring the misbehavior of the former Yeezy designer.
Former Adidas employees speak up about Kanye West and his treatment of the staff
According to Rolling Stone, sports Adidas brand received an open letter from former staff members regarding West’s behavior. The letter titled “The Truth About Yeezy: A Call to Action for Adidas Leadership” accused the brand of ignoring the inappropriate behavior Ye has displayed towards the workers over the years.
The statement mentioned that the hip-hop star is obsessed with p**n and used to show videos and photos to the staff. Shockingly, the fashion designer even showed staffers personal photos of his then-wife, Kim Kardashian.
“He has, in years past, exploded at women in the room with offensive remarks, and would resort to sexually disturbing references when providing design feedback,” read the open letter.
The report stated that West has bullied and criticized people working under him, but Adidas never took any action. The former employees feel that the company should have protected them instead of turning a bind eye to it. However, they couldn’t contain all those experiences of abuse and lashed out publicly.
What do you think? How will Adidas cope with serious allegations put against them? Do you think West can get past all these complains rising against him lately?
