Adidas Stands by Kanye West, Despite Slavery Remarks

Adidas Stands by Kanye West, Despite Slavery Remarks

However, another insider said that "Kanye and Kris have never had a fight", adding, "Just because Kanye is having a strong opinion does not mean that he is mentally ill or headed for a breakdown".

On May 1, 2018, Kanye was interviewed by TMZ.

After West's comments went viral, Sensabaugh, who is running as an Independent for mayor of Sullivan County, Tennessee, told TMZ Sports that he agrees with West's comments on slavery. "If you just hear him say something in 10 seconds or 15 seconds, you're going to think he's lost his mind".

Multiple sources told Us on Wednesday, May 2, that the couple are paying the legal bills for Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old woman who is now serving a life sentence in prison on a nonviolent drug conviction. "I'll combat your free thought with my free thought, because mine is grounded in the reality that I have been given, and the reality that I'm going to change, but I'm not going to do it by pretending that the enemies are on the same team as me".

These comments, predictably, created swift backlash.

It has been a controversial several days for Kanye West.

Looking at the current, we are expecting the film to collect around Rs 150 crore in its first week at the box office. If it does that, Marvel will be just behind The Force Awakens for the second-biggest opening weekend of all-time.

"To make myself clear". Of course, I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. He then backpedaled tweeting that he was only talking about mental slavery and that his free thinking should not be criticized.

What did the Adidas CEO say?

West's only public contribution to a political entity is a donation to Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2015, so we can not pretend that Kanye has secretly been a closeted alt-right pariah just waiting for the right time to reappear and appeal to a certain sect of his fanbase.

"There clearly are some comments we don't support", Rorsted said on a call with journalists.

"Kanye has been, and is, a very important part of our strategy and has been a fantastic creator", Rorsted said in an interview on Bloomberg TV. "It has been interesting and against the grain, more positive than the rest of the mainstream media it seems to me, also surprising". "That's pretty much the party line at this stage", he said. Rorsted played down the impact of West's comments, noting that Adidas earned almost $25 billion in its last fiscal year. "While Kanye is a very important part of the Adidas brand, Adidas is a large global company that [has] a very strong presence around the world and will continue to perform well", he said.

"Kanye has helped us have a great comeback in the USA", Rorsted said. We are both dragon energy.
