He told the outlet on Tuesday that black people's suffering from slavery was "a choice".

Rorsted said Thursday that Adidas is against slavery and racism. "I'll combat your free thought with my free thought, because mine is grounded in the reality that I have been given, and the reality that I'm going to change, but I'm not going to do it by pretending that the enemies are on the same team as me".

To the interviewers at TMZ, West said that "right now we're choosing to be enslaved", which provoked an angry response from a black member of staff at the company, Van Lathan. Statements from West that have come under heavy scrutiny recently were released on April 25 and were concerning Trump and the "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) movement.

When you hear about slavery for 400 years. for 400 years? You was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all? I'm not going to comment on every comment he or somebody else are making.

"There clearly are some comments we do not support", Rorsted said on a call with analysts on Wednesday, adding that the company has not yet spoken to West about the matter, but plans to imminently.

The former "Watch the Throne" tourmates haven't seen one another since their falling out but Kanye said they are "good now". And then he deleted some of the tweets. "I'm always gonna represent that, but I also represent the world".


But West made bigger headlines during a free-wheeling appearance at TMZ Live, part of the Hollywood gossip site. As someone who survived suicide and now battles a chronic mental illness, there was only so much I could find amusing, and this situation walks a thin line between humorous and sad.

Kanye West has been in the news a lot as of late.

The Gold Digger rapper has been hitting headlines ever since he returned to Twitter last month (Apr18) and pledged his support for controversial US president Donald Trump. "You want to think freely, that's fine".

"Dragon Energy? Hell yea, I want some of that!"

As to be expected, these comments made by West in support of the current president faced huge amounts of backlash, not only from critics but also fans.

Celebrities and everyday people took to social media to address these comments through memes, justification, for frustration.
