STORY: Adidas Investigates Kanye West’s Misconduct Claims.
The sportswear brand said Thursday it had launched an investigation after receiving an anonymous letter with several allegations against the musician, who now goes by the name Ye.
Just last month, Adidas ended its partnership with the rapper and fashion designer after Ye made anti-Semitic comments that the brand deemed “unacceptable, hateful and dangerous.”
They had a fashion collaboration with the brand Yeezy.
The investigation follows a Rolling Stone magazine report published Tuesday that detailed several alleged incidents of inappropriate behavior by Ye toward employees and potential employees.
Among them, playing pornography to Yeezy employees – including his own sex tape.
According to the magazine, former Yeezy and Adidas employees sent an anonymous letter to Adidas, claiming that company executives were aware of Ye’s behavior but “turned off their moral compass.”
In a statement to Reuters, an Adidas spokesperson said:
“It is currently unclear whether the allegations made in the anonymous letter are true.”
“However, we take these allegations very seriously and have decided to immediately launch an independent investigation into the matter to resolve the allegations.”
