- A former Yeezy worker told Rolling Stone that Kanye West would yell and throw books across the room.
- Rolling Stone says that the former worker for the fashion label worked on West’s remote Wyoming ranch.
- Adidas has started looking into how the people at Yeezy work.
A former employee of Yeezy said that Ye, or Kanye West, would yell and throw books across the room, making people afraid for their safety.
More than a dozen people who used to work for West at Adidas and Yeezy told the publication that the place where they worked was “toxic and chaotic.” After working together for nine years, the rapper and the huge sportswear company broke up in October.
Someone who worked with Yeezy on West’s ranch in Cody, Wyoming, said that some things that happened in 2020 were “very unpleasant.”
Adidas moved some of the Yeezy showroom to West’s ranch in Cody, Wyoming, which is far away from anywhere else. Rolling Stone says that he asked about 90 of his employees to come from Los Angeles or Portland.
The worker says West would act strangely on the ranch. He would yell, jump on tables, and throw books across the room, the worker says. The former employee told Rolling Stone, “I was worried about my safety.” “How about he throws you something?”
A spokeswoman for Adidas said that an investigation has been started into the work environment at Yeezy because of what was said in an anonymous letter from staff.
“Adidas does not allow hate speech or offensive behavior, so Adidas and Yeezy have stopped working together,” the representative said. We have been and will continue to talk with our staff about what happened before we decided to stop working together. They have our full support while we figure out the last details of the breakup.
“Right now, it’s not clear if the anonymous letter’s claims are true, but we’re taking them very seriously and have decided to start an independent investigation into the situation right away to find out.” When Insider asked Yeezy for a comment on what happened, they did not respond right away.
