Kanye West escorted from Skechers headquarters after arriving ‘unannounced and uninvited’

It comes at a time Kanye has had deals terminated from the clothing brand Gap and Balenciaga fashion house due to his antisemitic comments. Television production company MRC also decided they would not be airing a recently finished documentary.

They wrote: “Kanye is a producer and sampler of music. Last week he sampled and remixed a classic tune that has charted for over 3,000 years – the lie that Jews are evil and conspire to control the world for their own gain.”

After a “brief discussion” Kanye and “his party” were escorted from Skechers by two executives.

Kanye, who has legally changed his name to Ye, also “engaged in unauthorised filming” while on Skechers property.

In a statement released after the incident, the footwear company said: “Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West.

“We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech.”

The incident comes one day after the brand Adidas ended its longtime collaboration with the musician and announced production of the popular Yeezy shows would be immediately stopped.

The loss of the deal has reportedly cut Ye’s net worth from $1.5billion to $400million, resulting in Forbes magazine removing him from their list of billionaires.

Ye recently claimed that Adidas could not drop him, which prompted the Anti-Defamation League to call on the company to end its business relationship with the rapper.

Adidas wrote: “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.”

The commentary has led many celebrities to condemn Ye, with Reese Witherspoon saying his comments were “hate and unacceptable” while Florence Pugh said it was “absolutely appalling”.

Comedian Sarah Silverman criticised the remarks and said: “Kanye threatened the Jews yesterday on Twitter and it’s not even trending. Why do mostly only Jews speak up against Jewish hate? The silence is so loud.”

Backlash followed on social media after a video clip was posted of an antisemitic hate group endorsing Ye’s statements, and they held up a banner over a bridge stating “Kanye is right about the Jews” while making Nazi salutes.

Ms Silverman then posted: “Lemme guess: still not time to get scared.”

His ex-wife Kim Kardashian also condemned the musician’s comments, and posted on social media: “Hate speech is never OK or excusable. I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.”
