Adidas CEO Is Distancing Himself From Kanye West But Isn't Cutting Ties

Later on in the video, the rappers begin recording "Ye Vs".

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I believe it's the flawless time to address Kanye West's recent behavior.

"Everyday we have to walk into that truth while you choose to say things, that to be honest with you dog, are nonsensical", said Van. "I think he's on a personal journey and he's doing something that none of us understands". "I can't express to you how traumatizing that moment is [when your friends and family leave the hospital] and then you wake up drugged the f- out".

And, while Yeezy may be the co-author of "Thank You and You're Welcome", he previously said that he typically stays away from books - especially those of the fictional variety. "We just are refusing to give him a platform". "I had breakfast with him on Sunday and we talked for nearly two hours and I didn't get a hint of any of this".

The CEO of Adidas said that rapper Kanye West was still an "important part" of the company's strategy, even after the performer's comments about slavery. "I thought about my grandmother who was born in 1920, and her connection with her mum who raised her, who was born in the late 1800s", said.

"Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all a y'all?"

"He gets up and he's talking slavery, right?" "I don't mean to insult his reality ..." Rorsted said Yeezy provides a limited financial contribution but is important for "brand heat".

"I didn't live through slavery", she stated. However, he did make it clear the company will talk to the 40-year-old about the issue. As we previously reported, the California rapper - who's also a member of the Crips - sent a message out to other Crip members to harm Kanye. After having supported West throughout his career, several of his fans felt hurt to see him represent the MAGA movement, sporting the classic red hat.

"I am my ancestors, I am their survival, I am their will", Lathan said. But what I am sure he is aware of is the fact that the Trump administration is targeting minorities in the United States, mainly the Latinx and African-American communities, and has made openly racist comments about them. But I do want to focus on the core, what the company's about is delivering the best sporting goods products in the world, and having our consumers buy those products, and that's what's happening right now in the marketplace.
