Antonio Brown is not leaving Kanye West‘s side despite recent controversies.
West is currently facing a ban from some big social media platforms. On top of that, all of the major brands like Adidas, Gap and Balenciaga are terminating their deals with the rapper. But, former NFL star Antonio Brown is in Kanye’s corner as he continues his position as the Donda Sports’ President.
Kanye, now known by just ‘Ye,’ is a famous American music artist. Despite his lyrical brilliance, West is not always the most coherent speaker. In an outrageous rant, Kanye made some anti-semitic comments. It led to West’s initial ban on Instagram. West then used Twitter as a tool to let out his frustrations against Mark Zuckerberg.
While the majority of the world is distancing itself from West, Brown is standing by his friend. Kanye is the founder of Donda Sports and Antonio Brown is the President of the company. Amid Ye’s recent controversy, Donda Sports’ two high-profile clients Jaylen Brown and Aaron Donald have left the agency. However, one person who isn’t leaving is, Antonio Brown.
Brown posted a message on his Twitter account in protest of censorship. A part of his statement read, “None of us in this world are free of judgment, yet we live in a time where scrutiny and pessimism have driven our dialogues on cultural issues toward diatribes. Sensationalism and groupthink have forced people to not speak their minds and act out in fear rather than love.”
Fans react to Antonio Brown supporting Kanye West
Kanye West has somewhat apologized for his comments on the Jewish community. However, it was not enough to repair the damage that his remarks already caused. The latest brand to terminate its contract with Kanye is Adidas. As some reports suggest, it caused a massive drop in his net worth.
As per Forbes, the Adidas deal added $1.5 Billion to his net worth. But, now that the German footwear company is no longer selling Kanye’s brand, Yeezy, the 45-year-old will see a significant drop off in his net worth. Forbes is reporting that West’s net worth stands at $400 million without the Adidas deal. So the controversy caused the self-proclaimed genius his status as a Billionaire.
Despite that, the former NFL quarterback is willing to endorse Kanye. Brown joined Donda Sports as the President earlier in February, this year. Although West is losing allies left and right, Brown is putting out messages of support for Kanye. However, fans do not believe that Brown is the person behind the message and it led to some hilarious comments.
