Forbes Drops Kanye West From Billionaire List as Corporations Sever Ties Over Controversial Comments
Forbes has removed Kanye West from their billionaire list after he made controversial comments regarding the Jewish people.
Adidas reportedly dropped Ye from the deal he had with the large multinational corporation, which according to Forbes, drops his net worth under a billion dollars.
“Adidas does not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech. Ye’s recent comments and actions have been unacceptable, hateful and dangerous, and they violate the company’s values of diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness,” the company stated in a press release.
“After a thorough review, the company has taken the decision to terminate the partnership with Ye immediately, end production of Yeezy branded products and stop all payments to Ye and his companies. Adidas will stop the Adidas Yeezy business with immediate effect,” they added.
Adidas caved to pressure from organized pro-Jewish groups encouraging them to drop Ye:

Because Ye stated his controversial thoughts about Jewish power, he is being systematically destroyed by an open conspiracy of the world’s most powerful interests.

Ari Emanuel, CEO of Endeavor and brother of former Chicago Mayor and Obama crony Rahm Emanuel, gave the orders for the corporate elite to sever ties with Ye in an op/ed last week.
“West is not just any person — he is a pop culture icon with millions of fans around the world,” Emanuel wrote. “And among them are young people whose views are still being formed. This is why it is necessary for all of us to speak out. Hatred and anti-Semitism should have no place in our society, no matter how much money is at stake.”
Big League Politics reported on Ye’s recent controversies, which began with his fashion show featuring White Lives Matter apparel:
“Pro-MAGA rap star Kanye West wore a “white lives matter” shirt during an impromptu fashion show in Paris, France on Monday.
Commentator and Blexit pioneer Candace Owens appeared with him at the event and wore the same shirt, which she posted on her social media profile:
“I am Ye, and everyone here knows that I am the leader,” he said while addressing attendees of his fashion show. “You can’t manage me.”
“There’s just people. From the same planet. And sometimes, in high school, it feels like we don’t fit in. And in a situation like this, we have the opportunity to come together to express who we are,” West said to Vogue describing what he is intending to accomplish with his fashion shows.
“It’s leaning into the shape of how I see this future world … this alternate world. But in high school. It’s focused on curriculum because both my parents are educators,” he added.”
The corporate elite is attempting to unperson Ye. Only time will tell if they can be successful in destroying him. Ye has thus far shown no signs of backing down.
