The Heartless Rapper is amid lots of controversies since he started making disturbing and insensitive remarks and tweets. The most controversial out of all is the Anti-Semitic comment he made. West tweeted vowing that he would go “death Con 3” on Jewish people.

Following that the rapper was slammed online by the Jewish people and was blocked from Twitter. West later bashed the Jewish Media for silencing him. Many public figures have since called out Kanye West and many brands have withdrawn their ties with the rapper. West was also blocked from Instagram after he threw some racial slurs against The Daily Show host Trevor Noah. The host mentioned Kanye West’s treatment of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

Another backlash for the rapper came when he donned a T-shirt with the ‘White Lives Matter’ slogan. This happened during the recent Paris Fashion Week which the rapper attended for the 9th season of the Yeezy showcase.

Adidas finally terminated its contract with Kanye West on October 25, after a lot of celebrities and the public started calling out the shoe brand. The brand gave a statement saying,

“Adidas does not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech,” the brand said in a statement. “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.”

As for Kanye West, the rapper has shared that he does not feel he will get canceled saying, “We here, baby, we ain’t going nowhere.” The rapper also said that the day he lost the deal with Balenciaga was one of his most ‘Freeing’ days. And according to him even after losing numerous brand deals, he is not losing any money.
