After all the commotion surrounding Ye, JPMorgan, the largest bank in the US, decided to cancel its partnership with the YEEZY brand. Ye and his company have until November 21 to find a new bank, the bank said in an official statement.
Aside from the date the partnership officially ended, the statement did not specify the exact reason why the bank no longer wanted to work with YEEZY. This may have something to do with Ye’s anti-Semitic remarks over the past week. The quarrel between Ye and Adidas could also be a reason. A video shows Ye’s reaction to the news during a conversation with reporters. “I’m glad I crossed the line,” he said, among other things.
JPMorgan’s statement comes after a turbulent week for Ye. Earlier this week, his Twitter account was suspended for anti-Semitic comments. During that discussion, Ye appeared in a thread claiming that Didi was controlled by Jews. The caption below the post read “Jesus was a Jew.” He also wrote that he planned to participate in “Jewish Death Hoax 3.” He also played porn to make his point in meetings with the Adidas board.
