Kanye West Gets Kicked Out of Skechers’ Los Angeles Corporate Office
After critically acclaimed rap artist Kanye West made several politically incorrect remarks about Jewish influence in American business and politics, he has been effectively canceled by corporate titans over the last few weeks.
The most recent cancellation came on October 25, 2022 when Ye was “escorted” out of Skechers’ offices on October 25.
According to a Skechers statement, West arrived unannounced and without invitation to one of Skechers’ corporate offices in Los Angeles. In the statement, Skechers claimed that West “was engaged in unauthorized filming” which prompted two Skechers executives to escort him and his entourage from the building following a brief encounter. Skechers stated that it “is not considering and has no intention of working with West.”
The footwear company stressed that “We condemn his [West’s] recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech” and added that the rap artist “showed up unannounced and uninvited to Skechers corporate offices.”
West has also lost deals with companies such as Adidas. Other companies such as Gap Inc. closed down its store in Times Square in Manhattan, which featured West’s Yeezy brand products.
The rapper’s current ordeal shows how the powers that be in America are not interested in open discourse about controversial political subjects. Instead, they want to muzzle controversial discourse through state and private means. The latter is the means of choice in the US, which has robust free speech protections from state actors.
However, the private sector, especially megacorporations, are more than willing to act like Pinkerton’s for the regime on matters of free speech.
Undoubtedly, one of the biggest tasks for America First nationalists is to limit the influence of major corporations in America. If it requires state involvement to achieve this goal, then so be it.
