This apology follows a series of controversial incidents involving West, including sharing antisemitic conspiracy theories with Fox News host Tucker Carlson and making threats of violence against Jews on social media. These actions led to repercussions in his career, including the loss of his billionaire status after Adidas severed ties with him due to not tolerating hate speech.
Adidas has initiated an internal investigation against West in response to allegations of inappropriate workplace conduct. Additionally, West was recently filmed singing along to an antisemitic track with R&B singer Chris Brown, further fueling the backlash against him.
This is not the first time West has faced criticism for his antisemitic behavior, as he previously had his contracts with Adidas and Balenciaga terminated due to social media rants. His Twitter and Instagram accounts were also restricted following antisemitic tirades.
