According to a Foot Locker spokesperson, the company will continue to be “a partner with Adidas and carry a wide assortment of their collections – we will not be supporting any future Yeezy product drops, and we have instructed our retail operators to pull any existing product from our shelves and digital sites.”


In addition, the rapper has lost several lucrative partnerships, including one with Adidas. On Tuesday, the German sportswear conglomerate ended a partnership valued at more than $1.5 billion in total, including royalty payments and other fees.

Universal Music’s Def Jam label, which owned the copyright to West’s recordings from 2002 to 2016 and continued to distribute them until last year, issued a statement condemning Ye’s remarks, saying, ‘There is no place for antisemitism in our society.’


However, the label has not requested that Ye’s recordings be removed. The music is also available on Apple Music and YouTube Music.
