At the time of West’s anti-Semitic comments the company said: “Adidas does not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech.”

The BBC also reports that Adidas is being sued by investors who claim that the brand knew about West’s problematic behaviour years before it ended their partnership.

In response, Adidas said it rejected “these unfounded claims”, adding that it would take “all necessary measures to vigorously defend ourselves against them”.

Elsewhere, earlier this month it was reported that West had opened a new Yeezy office in Los Angeles next door to a building owned by Adidas.
