Kanye West Turned Away From Skechers Headquarters

This week Adidas cut ties with Kanye West after he made a series antisemitic comments on social media and in interviews [click here if you missed that]. 

Yesterday Ye was turned away from the Skechers headquarters in LA after showing up unannounced looking for a new distributor for his shoes...

Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was escorted out of the Los Angeles office of shoemaker Skechers , the company said Wednesday afternoon, as the fallen rapper and fashion mogul continues to face fallout from his recent antisemitic remarks.
Ye showed up unannounced and was escorted out of the building by two executives, the company said. Ye has officially changed his name from Kanye West.
“Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West. We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech,” the company said in a statement. “The Company would like to again stress that West showed up unannounced and uninvited to Skechers corporate offices.”
