Kanye West is a force to be reckoned with. The star has been in the game for more than 15 years, and for many it's hard to remember the entertainment industry without him in it. While he's known for his many talents, including his producing and rapping, he's also known for his controversial moments, which many believe may have led to his split from Kim Kardashian.
After openly sharing his mental illness, West is finally being deplatformed instead of given ever louder mics to make predictably controversial statements. In the aftermath of his "White Lives Matter" stunt and his anti-Semitic remarks, West has been dropped by his talent agency CAA, as well as by Balenciaga and Anna Wintour-led Vogue. Film and TV producer MRC also said it was shelving an already-finished documentary about West as they "cannot support any content that amplifies his platform," according to the Los Angeles Times.
Now the pressure is on for German sportswear giant Adidas to end their partnership with West as evidence of his harmful impact is ramping up anti-Semitic hatred. The company, whose founders reportedly had ties to Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, announced weeks ago that it was reviewing its relationship with West after he'd become upset with how they were marketing his products, and again after he appeared at a fashion show in Paris wearing a shirt with the slogan "White Lives Matter."
