Denmark native Kanye West Criticizes Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted, Threatens to Walk Away From Gapnative 

It was around this time last month that Kanye West called out Adidas over creating Yeezy Day without his approval and now, he sets his eyes on the brand’s departing CEO, Kasper Rorsted. Just moments ago, Ye published a photograph on Instagram of a sham The New York Times front-page story with a heading that says “Kasper Rorsted also dead at 60.”

There are tiny messages that appear directly underneath, which state “I know what you’re thinking… who is Kasper? but even less important who is Kid Cudi?” The post caption also states “God loves us.” West has recently been quite public about his discontent with Adidas and Rorsted. In June, West accused the brand’s new Adilette 22 Slides of being a “blatant copy” of his own Adidas Yeezy Slides, calling out Rorsted by name.

West has recently been quite public about his discontent with Adidas and Rorsted. In June, West accused the brand’s new Adilette 22 Slides of being a “blatant copy” of his own Adidas Yeezy Slides, calling out Rorsted by name. While it’s difficult to pinpoint West’s intentions with the new post, the fake New York Times page’s Aug. 24, 2022, date looks to be a reference to the time of Rorsted’s statement that he will leave down as CEO of Adidas in early 2023.

Skete Davidson Dead at 28

Last month, West uploaded a similar photoshopped photo of The New York Times front page that reads “Skete Davidson Dead at 28” following reports that had suggested the divorce between comedian Pete Davidson and Ye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian. Referenced in both of the phony Times pages is Kid Cudi, who had replaced West in this year’s Rolling Loud Miami roster after he backed out of the event. West also called out Gap on social media yesterday night after he stated that the clothing retailer had “canceled” a picture session with his kids “without me knowing.”

In follow-up articles, he laid out plans for constructing Yeezy stores across the country and claimed part of his deals with both Adidas and Gap included plans to build those retail stores, none of which have come to fruition.
