The two sports stars are the latest in a long line of partners severing ties with the Chicago creative.

“Our family has made the decision to part ways with Donda Sports. The recent comments and displays of hate and antisemitism are the exact opposite of how we choose to live our lives and raise our children,” Aaron and his wife Erica Donald relayed in a statement.
They added: “We find them to be irresponsible and go against everything we believe in as a family,”

Erica Donald also served in an executive role at Donda Sports in addition to handling her All-Pro husband’s marketing responsibilities.
Jaylen Brown signed with Donda Sports in May. After condemning Kanye’s comments earlier this week and saying he would stay with the producer and rapper’s agency, he has now backtracked and decided to leave.

“In the past 24 hours, I’ve been able to reflect and better understand how my previous statements lacked clarity in expressing my stance against recent insensitive public remarks and actions. For that, I apologize,” Brown said in a statement.
“In light of that, after sharing in conversations, I now recognize that there are times when my voice and my position can’t coexist in spaces that don’t correspond with my stance or my values. And for that reason, I am terminating my association with Donda Sports.”
