Kanye West Kicked Out of Building by Skechers Executives After He “Arrived Unannounced and Without Invitation”

American multinational footwear company Skechers announced Wednesday that Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, had been escorted from the company’s Los Angeles headquarters by its two executives.

According to the company, West “arrived unannounced and without invitation.” He was allegedly doing “unauthorized filming” and was escorted out of the building “after a brief conversation.”

Below is the official statement from Skechers:

“Skechers USA, Inc., The Comfort Technology Company™, stated Kanye West – also referred to as Ye – arrived unannounced and without invitation at one of Skechers’ corporate offices in Los Angeles. Considering Ye was engaged in unauthorized filming, two Skechers executives escorted him and his party from the building after a brief conversation. 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 Company would like to again stress that West showed up unannounced and uninvited to Skechers corporate offices.”

Following Kanye’s controversial comments, major companies have been severing ties with him.

On Tuesday, Adidas announced it would stop its partnership with Kanye West, and Gap Inc. announced it would drop items he helped design from its stores.

“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,” Adidas said in a statement.

“Adidas is the sole owner of all design rights to existing products as well as previous and new colorways under the partnership. More information will be given as part of the company’s upcoming Q3 earnings announcement on November 9, 2022.”

Gap spokesperson said, “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.”

“Our former partner’s recent remarks and behaviour further underscore why we are taking immediate steps to remove Yeezy Gap product from our stores.”

Below is the list of other companies that canceled Kanye West via Insider:

Balenciaga:

Kering, Balenciaga’s parent company, told Women’s Wear Daily that it had severed ties with Ye.

“Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist,” it said.

Insider reported that Balenciaga had quietly removed all mentions of the artist from its site – including its Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga line.

Vogue:

A spokesperson for fashion magazine Vogue told Page Six that the publication and its editor-in-chief Anna Wintour had no plans to continue working with Ye.

Fashion editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson had criticized Ye’s show at Paris Fashion Week, including the “White Lives Matter” shirts.

“The t-shirts this man conceived, produced, and shared with the world are pure violence,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories.

Ye himself then targeted Karefa-Johnson on social media, ridiculing her outfit and saying she wasn’t a “fashion person.”

CAA:

Talent agency CAA dropped Ye, news outlets including Deadline, The Los Angeles Times, and Variety reported on Monday.

Deadline reported that CAA only represented for touring, and that he hasn’t toured since signing with the agency in 2016.
