Adidas stands by Kanye West after he called slavery 'a choice'

Donald Trump Kanye West

"Kanye and the Yeezy is a very important part of our brand, from a revenue standpoint less so, but it's a very important part of how we promote our products, particularly in the USA and other parts of the world", Rorsted said. "We don't want to hear Kanye's music, we don't want to play Kanye on our show, we don't want to talk about Kanye anymore".

"You don't have to agree with Trump but the mob can't make me not love him", West wrote in another tweet later that day.

Detroit hip-hop station 105.1 The Bounce says it's pulling Kanye West songs off of its playlists following a recent string of erratic episodes from the rapper, including West saying he believes slavery was a "choice". Yet, West seems to be praising him and we still do not know the answer as to why. West asked incredulously during an interview with TMZ on Tuesday. But first of all, this is Kanye West we're talking about here.

Tesla posts new record quarterly loss - US$784.6mil
Following the call, the value of Tesla shares dropped five per cent, wiping more than $2bn off the firm's market capitalisation. The automaker reported net losses of $784.6 million on revenue of $3.4 billion in the first three months of this year.

"I actually don't think you're thinking anything", Lathan said.

"For many, many years we have been a member of the USA human rights declaration, which speaks very clearly against slavery, racism, child labor". "Right now, I feel like listening or supporting his music would make me complicit in some of the things that are going on right now, I can't do it". "You can listen to 105.1 The Bounce's call to "#MuteKanye" below. Then when they said they wanted to beat me up I said 'That's great, them my brothers, they love me. In the end, though, the listeners voted in favor of muting Kanye.

That's when Van Lathan fired back with an answer that embodied what many confused and disappointed fans have been thinking in the days since West returned to Twitter, where he's posted a almost constant stream of abstract musings, many outlining his support for Trump, whom the rapper called his "brother".

Scores dead as high-intensity squall hits Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan
Dust storm in Rajasthan's Alwar, Dholpur and Bharatpur districts, killed 31 people and injured another 100, officials said . Bharatpur suffered the maximum damage in Rajasthan in terms of loss to life as 12 people were killed in the district.

Chris Brown was convicted of assaulting Rihanna when she was his girlfriend in 2009, and R. Kelly has always been accused of behavior ranging from questionable to criminal.

If West's newfound politics have baffled some longtime fans, the 40-year-old has clear stylistic affinities with Trump - a bombastic round-the-clock presence on Twitter, with musings that appear to be stream-of-consciousness but manage to commandeer each news cycle.

Shay Shay said she agreed with the suggestion but didn't say if they would be muting their music also.
