(Newser)

Kanye West wasn’t invited to a Los Angeles corporate office of Skechers on Wednesday, and it appears he wasn’t welcome. The rapper’s unannounced visit happened a day after a competitor, Adidas, ended its business partnership with him; West has faced widespread denunciation for making a series of anti-Semitic remarks. Two executives escorted West out of the Skechers building, CNBC reports. In a statement, the company made clear that it hadn’t asked West, who now goes by Ye, to visit.


“Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West,” the statement said. “We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech.” The company also said the rapper was filming at the office, which it hadn’t approved. A Jewish family owns and runs Skechers, per TMZ. Robert Greenberg founded the company, and his son Michael is its president. (Read more Kanye West stories.)
