The End

On Tuesday, Forbes made it official that Kanye has lost his billionaire status in the wake of Adidas ending the partnership. In addition to this severe blow, several other deals falling apart including Gap might have had a detrimental effect on Kanye’s fortune, knocking him out of the billionaire club. According to the reports from Forbes, at the moment Kanye’s net worth is around $4oo million. Compared to his massive net worth a couple of years ago amounting to a whopping $1.3 billion, this is a major dip. Forbes states that most of Kanye’s riches at the moment are limited to selective sources that include real estate, liquid cash, his music catalog, and his less than 5 percent stake in Kim Kardashian’s Skims brand.

The anti-Semitic Remarks

Although the termination of the partnership resulted in a considerable loss of profits for Adidas, the brand is not going back on its decision, thanks to Kanye’s offensive and anti-semitic remarks that seem to get worse with time. Right after Adidas made the major decision, Gap and FootLocker followed suit stating that they don’t tolerate any form of racism or antisemitism.

“Foot Locker, Inc. does not tolerate any form of antisemitism or hateful and discriminatory behavior. While we remain a partner with Adidas and carry a wide assortment of their collections – we will not be supporting any future Yeezy product drops,” a Foot Locker spokesperson said.

Just like uncle Ben said to Peter Parker, “With great power comes great responsibility,” and if one fails to live up to that, and even sabotage the same, consequences will follow. Kanye West is the perfect example of that.

Responses On Twitter

Quite naturally, Twitter was crowded with reactions and responses following the termination of the partnership by Adidas. Kanye’s recent offensive comments created quite a stir and it looks like netizens are ready for a payback. Let us flip through a couple of them.

Well, better late than never.

There is still hope.
