The Bounce says it won't play Kanye West songs anymore

Adidas chief executive officer Kasper Rorsted is distancing himself from Kanye West following an outrageously offensive comment on slavery, but doesn't seem to be considering dropping West as a collaborator. I understand they were going through some things, but if it's family, you're not going to miss a wedding. "The needed depth for that conversation was not the form for that", he said, referring to the TMZ video that leaked. West has received a huge backlash from the left for professing his "love" for the President and posting a photo in a red "Make America Great Again" hat. West appeared volatile and erratic, first admitting that he was addicted to opioids and eventually delivering this jaw-dropping statement: "When you hear about slavery for 400 years - for 400 years?"

Adidas will continue to work with Kanye West despite an online petition on Care2 calling for the corporation to drop the rapper.

"We neither comment nor speculate on every single comment that our external creators are making", Rorsted said in an interview with Bloomberg.

"Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all a y'all?"

It is important that we use this situation as an opportunity to educate ourselves on mental health in the African American community and address how trauma alters the brain, and can increase the likelihood of someone developing a mental illness.

These tweets have since been deleted.

He said Adidas would look into whether West violated any codes of conduct with his remarks.

"When I see an outsider infiltrate, I connect with that", West told radio host Charlamagne tha God, adding that he was upset Obama invited other rappers to the White House. I'm not gonna do that shit. "I know Kanye's heart".

Feminist writer Roxane Gay tweeted, "I don't have the energy for nonsense but Kanye saying slavery was a choice reiterates my previous statements about how risky his trite, shallow ramblings are. And we have the right to independent thought".

Rorsted said that he had not spoken to West.

West was a vocal Trump supporter during the 2016 presidential race and recently returned to Twitter after a almost yearlong hiatus. Owens is also the person who the rapper acknowledged on Twitter last week and said he likes the way she thinks.
