Kanye West, the musician and fashion mogul now known as "Ye," showed up unannounced at Skechers headquarters in Manhattan Beach on Wednesday and was promptly escorted out by security.
According to a statement from Skechers, Ye showed up "unannounced and without invitation."
"Considering Ye was engaged in unauthorized filming, two Skechers executives escorted him and his party from the building after a brief conversation," read the statement. "Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West. 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 had famously had a partnership with Adidas that some estimates put at between $1 and $2 billion in sales per year for Adidas, netting Ye hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties.
Following Ye's brazen and offensive antisemitic diatribes, Adidas ended that partnership earlier this week.
Among the other companies that have dropped him are Balenciaga, Foot Locker, Gap, his law firm, and his talent agency.
