Kanye West Reacts To Losing ‘$2 Billion In One Day’ Following adidas Termination
Ye reportedly lost his billionaire status after adidas dropped him.
Kanye West has returned to Instagram and reacted to losing “$2 billion in one day” after his adidas contract was terminated.
The rap mogul took to social media on Thursday morning (October 27) to send a message to entertainment industry super agent Ari Emanuel after he called for companies to stop working with him. Based on his comments, Ye doesn’t appear to be ruffled by losing such a large amount of money in a short space of time.

“Ari Emmanuel, I lost 2 billion dollars in one day and I’m still alive,” Kanye wrote. “This is love speech. I still love you. God still loves you. The money is not who I am. The people is who I am.”

Ari Emanuel recently wrote an op-ed for the Financial Times that condemned Kanye West’s anti-Semitism and explained the impact of companies not taking action against him.
“Apple and Spotify, which host West’s music, whoever organizes West’s tours, and Adidas, which collaborates with West on his fashion line, should all stop working with him,” he wrote. “Silence is dangerous. It allows forms of hatred and racism, including anti-Semitism, to spread and become normalized. It coarsens and degrades our society and country.”

He continued: “Those who continue to do business with West are giving his misguided hate an audience. There should be no tolerance anywhere for West’s anti-Semitism. This is a moment in history where the stakes are high and being open about our values, and living them, is essential. Silence and inaction are not an option.”
