On Tuesday morning, Kanye appeared on TMZ Live, where he chatted with TMZ founder Harvey Levin and the news outlet's staff about his love of President Donald Trump - "That's my boy", he said of the POTUS - before veering into a discussion about slavery.

Adidas said it planned to discuss them with the rapper, but nothing beyond that was mentioned. "Kanye and Yeezy is a very important part of our brand from a revenue standpoint.It's a very important part of how we promote our products, particularly in the USA and other parts of the world". "I like the word "imprisoned" because slavery goes too directly to the idea of blacks", he said after his slavery comment.

CEO Kasper Rorsted distanced the company from the recent controversy but says adidas will continue to work with West as a designer, according to Reuters.

"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.

"When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years?!" "Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all y'all?"
