Rub! Companies on the left and right ended their relationship with Ye after comments against his semantics, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to die any time soon. According to ABC News, Gap has taken immediate steps to remove Yeezy Gap products from its stores. If you recall, in September they announced the Yeezy Gap partnership would end after Ye said he wanted to terminate the deal for various reasons.
Ye launched a chain of apparel stores on social media about shady business practices. The Wall Street Journal received a letter from the GRAMMY award-winning rapper’s attorneys notifying Gap that he had decided to end the partnership. The letter alleges that Gap violated its partnership agreement by “failing to release clothing and open retail as planned.”
The former rapper even called Gap’s leader, “Don’t bring in a leader and let them not lead. Why am I arguing that people are getting paid by Gap? I’m sorry, you know I’m not going to argue with people who have failed me over money. “
While both sides seem to be on the same page about the partnership ending in September, Gap is also speaking out against Ye following his anti-Semitic comments. In a statement, they said, “Our former partner’s recent comments and behavior further underscore why. We are taking immediate steps to remove Yeezy Gap products from our store and we have closed Yeezygap.com. “
The statement continued, “Anti-Semitism, racism and hatred of any kind are inexcusable and not tolerated according to our values. On behalf of our customers, employees and shareholders, we are partnering with organizations that fight hate and discrimination.” As we previously reported, Adidas, Balenciaga and Def Jam have severed ties with Ye. The termination of several partnerships cost Ye his billionaire status.
