Skechers Execs Had To Escort Kanye West Out Of Building After He Entered Unannounced To Make A Deal
After losing out on his massive deal with Adidas, Kanye West is out shopping for a new company to partner up with, and apparently he had his eyes set on Skechers.
According to the reports, the 45-year-old rapper showed up to Skechers headquarters Wednesday morning unannounced. He had no meeting scheduled with anyone in the company. He just thought because he’s Kanye West, he wouldn’t be turned away.
But seems like he isn’t fully aware that his name doesn’t hold the same value anymore. Insiders say Kanye was filming inside the building when two execs had to escort him out.
A spokesperson for the company released the following 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. Again, West showed up unannounced and uninvited to Skechers corporate offices.
Their response isn’t exactly surprising. After all, the company is owned and operated by a Jewish family, so it looks like Kanye didn’t do his research.
After being kicked out of the building, Kanye hit up a local bagel shop in Manhattan Beach. No one really bothered him, but sources say everyone was shocked to see him.
Is he not worried about people f**king with his food? That would be a constant fear of mine. I’d only be eating packaged products!
Anyway, it’s pretty crazy to see how far his stock has dropped. If he would have walked in Skechers just a few months ago, they probably would have given him the royal treatment.
