“Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West,” the company said in a statement. “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.”

Ye is a sportswear apparel free agent after Adidas cut ties with the rapper due to hate speech and anti-semitic language. Following Adidas cutting ties with Ye, Forbes officially bumps Ye’s billionaire title, revealing that he is worth $400 million without the sportswear brand.
