Following Kanye West’s controversial comments over the past weeks, his detractors have targeted companies that do business with the hip hop star, with the latest attack directed at sports brand Adidas.
MSNBC, provided a platform for New York Times reporter Andrew Sorkin to blame Republicans, or something, and urge people to “call Adidas,” before providing airtime for the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League Jonathan Greenblatt to slam the German clothing company.
“Adidas is a company that outfitted the Hitler Youth,” Greenblatt proclaimed after declaring that he doesn’t “believe in cancel culture” but “you also have to have consequences.”
“They have deep relationship to the Third Reich from the 30s and the 40s,” Greenblatt continued, adding “for this company to be monetising Kanye West in this moment, for them to be making money on antisemitism in this moment, every member of the board should have already stood up and said ‘enough’”.
