Adidas won’t cut ties with Kanye despite his controversial slavery comments

By Christina Santi,

Adidas will continue to work with Kanye West despite an online petition on Care2 calling for the corporation to drop the rapper. People are demanding the German sportswear company separate from West after he praised President Donald Trump and also suggested that slavery was a choice.

CEO Kasper Rorsted distanced the company from the recent controversy but says adidas will continue to work with West as a designer, according to Reuters.

“There clearly are some comments we don’t support,” Rorsted said on a call with journalists. “We are very committed to the Yeezy brand moving forward.” However, he did make it clear the company will talk to the 40-year-old about the issue.
