In May, a petition was started that called for Adidas to cut ties with Kanye West’s brand Yeezy. If you’re not familiar the petition came after a interview with TMZ where Kanye West stated that “slavery was a choice”. Kanye West recently did another interview on Saturday Night Live where he went on a rant backing up President Trump and suggesting that we abolish the Thirteenth Amendment. Since the release of the SNL interview the petition now has over 27,000 signatures. Below is what the CEO of Adidas had to say when the petition was first started.
