German sportswear maker Adidas just announced it is ending its collaboration with Ye, formerly known as Kanye, for his, let's face it, mentally unstable and also completely racist diatribes of the past month.

Kanye has received a lot of "attention" via his unprovoked anti-Semitic comments and embracing of white supremacist slogans.

Conover wrote about this a few days ago for C&L, "West's tweet in question was posted shortly before midnight, so he confirmed that he's a late-night, Jew-hating, garbage person. Thanks, but we kind of knew that already."

"I'm a bit sleepy tonight, but when I wake up I'm going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE The funny thing is I actually can't be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda," he wrote.

It had been a lucrative partnership for years, and it appears Adidas dragged their feet as long as they could. But in the end Kanye was going to cost the German company more money than he was making, long-term.

Adidas issued a press release announcing their decision to move on.

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.

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.

Kanye also provoked outrage by wearing a shirt at a surprise fashion show in Paris with the slogan "White Lives Matter" printed on the back as he was joined by MAGA cultist Candace Owens.

Ye has been dropped recently by CAA as well.

Racism, anti-Semitism, hate, xenophobia, Christian Nationalist zealots, election deniers, insurrection supporters, and unqualified wackos running for office is now the pillar of MAGA.

As an aside, Candace Owens seems to be worried about the Parler deal going south.
