American rapper and business mogul Kanye West might need to slow down before all comes crashing down. Kanye appears to still be hungover his separation with ex-wife Kim Kardashian, whom he tried to win back several times, but to no avail.
Since their divorce proceedings began, West has been on a plummeting emotional state, taking needless digs at people he feels have not taken his side and making mostly polarizing public gestures, especially targeted at liberal communities, otherwise known as the left.
In a little over 2 months, Kanye has been in the centre of a whirlwind of controversy, making anti-Semitic remarks and reducing the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement to a petty facade by donning a “White Lives Matter” inscribed tee-shirt.
According to Ye, his grievances lie with manipulative company executives that have robbed him of his wealth. But what he’s failed to consider is that not all Jews are executives, and not all the executives that have manipulated him are Jews. Therefore, using antisemitic remarks in his fights, is in the least, unacceptable; no matter his annoyance.
It has prompted many of the famed rapper’s allies to cut ties with him. And, just a couple of days ago, Forbes Magazine removed him from their list of billionaires after long-time partners, Addidas and Gap announced they will be cutting ties with him over “hateful and dangerous” comments.
Forbes joins a growing list of renowned establishments to cut ties with the rapper, including Twitter [had his account suspended indefinitely], Instagram [suspension], MRC, JP Morgan Chase, Vogue, Creative Arts Agency (CAA), Def Jam Records, and Balenciaga.
Colleagues and celebrities have also moved to boycott Ye, including; Justin Beiber, Meek Mill, Khloe and Kim Kardashian, Kid Kudi, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eric André, Florence Pugh, Josh Gad, Banks, Amy Schumer, Ruby Rose and Chelsea Handler, amongst many others.
