The rapper formerly known as Kanye West, Ye, is said to have showed workers pornographic recordings and pictures. This happened more than once, in the workplace, and some of the material included his own wife.
An open letter to executive board members and the new CEO of Adidas was penned on Tuesday night. It has called for the executives to take action concerning the “toxic and chaotic envrionment that Kanye West created.”
Ex-Yeezy and Adidas employees accuse Ye of displaying pornography while meeting on several instances. He also showed “explicit video and photos” of Kim Kardashian, his spouse at the time.
He even told one female employee at a factory sample room in China that the Yeezy prototypes were unsatisfactory to him.
“I want to make a show that I can f**k,” he reportedly told the woman.
One occasion describes an interview Ye conducted in 2018 when he pulled out his phone. He then stated that his wife had just sent him ‘this’ prior to showing a “very revealing” picture of Kardashian.
In another 2018 occurrence, West is said to have revealed an explicit video of Kim to Yeezy creative team workers. Two team members say that Ye showed them his own “homemade sex tapes.”
Reports note that these actions were just some of the uncomfortable gestures displayed by West with employees as an intimidation tactic. One former worker discussed a situation where employees walked out of a meeting after Ye pulled up “MILF porn.” He stated that “the feeling you get when you watch this is what I want people to feel when they put on our shoes.”
The report matched up with a 30-minute recording of West on YouTube where he shows Adidas executives pornography as a business meeting took place.
“Is this a porn movie?” one man can be heard asking.
In September, West had said that “pornography has destroyed my family.”
Ex-Yeezy team members have claimed that the company knew about West’s “problematic behavior” prior to this and had “turned their moral compass off.”
Adidas declined to make any remarks on any detailed speculations of West’s termination.
