Not to mention, Adidas had also put the “partnership under review” earlier this month after Kanye wore a t-shirt that read “White Lives Matter” out in public.

The Anti-Defamation League categorized the phrase on his shirt as a “hate slogan” that’s used by White supremacist groups including the Ku Klux Klan.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League mentioned that Adidas’ decision to end their partnership with Kayne is a “very positive outcome.”

“It illustrates that antisemitism is unacceptable and creates consequences. Without a doubt, Adidas has done the right thing by cutting ties with Ye after his vicious antisemitic rants,” he said in a statement. “In the end, Adidas’ action sends a powerful message that antisemitism and bigotry have no place in society.”
