Skechers USA Inc SKX.N mentioned on Wednesday its executives escorted Ye, previously generally known as Kanye West, out of a Los Angeles company office, after the rapper and clothier “confirmed up unannounced and uninvited.”
The footwear maker “has no intention of working with West,” it mentioned in a press release.
Skechers’ feedback come a day after sportswear model Adidas AG ADSGn.DEended its partnership with West, following a sequence of antisemitic feedback from the superstar.
“We condemn his latest divisive remarks and don’t tolerate antisemitism or another type of hate speech,” Skechers mentioned.
Reuters was not instantly in a position to contact Ye’s representatives for remark.
Apparel firm Gap Inc GPS.N, which terminated its tie-up with West in September, can be taking instant steps to take away Yeezy Gap merchandise from its shops and shut down YeezyGap.com.
Shares of California-based Skechers have been up practically 1% in prolonged buying and selling, after closing down practically 10% on Wednesday.
The firm on Tuesday forecast current-quarter gross sales under Wall Street estimates after lacking third-quarter earnings expectations, dented by greater working prices and a success from overseas alternate charges.
