After the analyst call on Wednesday, ostensibly to discuss Adidas' just-released quarterly earnings, Rorsted went on Bloomberg TV to talk shop. Kanye has been and is a very important part of our strategy, and has been a fantastic creator.
However, the German businessman hinted that the star's outburst was an unwanted distraction adding, "I saw the comment as you have seen it". After a steady stream of freakish tweets lead many to question his mental health, West popped into TMZ's Los Angeles offices on Tuesday for an impromptu appearance on their TMZ Live television show. His comments supporting Trump came after a series of similar tweets last week, during which West posted a picture of a red "Make America Great Again" hat signed by Trump.
"When you hear about slavery for 400 years".
West later tweeted that his comments on Tuesday had been misinterpreted and that he "brought up the 400 years point because we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years".
Trump 'dictated' his own glowing health report: doctor
Yesterday, NBC broke an exclusive story about the president's long-time family physician, NY doctor Harold Bornstein . The White House has however, refuted the claims saying nothing out of the ordinary took place at Bornstein's offices.
But West made bigger headlines during a free-wheeling appearance at TMZ Live, part of the Hollywood gossip site.
"Kanye has bashed Obama for not doing anything for Chicago", the source tells Us. You know, it's like we're mentally in prison. As someone who survived suicide and now battles a chronic mental illness, there was only so much I could find amusing, and this situation walks a thin line between humorous and sad. "Kanye will always be a friend of mine & although I might not necessarily agree with his views on certain topics, that is what separate us as individuals".
A while back, he had openly declared his support for President Donald Trump. "It's positive energy. I haven't seen him, but I can feel him".
As to be expected, these comments made by West in support of the current president faced huge amounts of backlash, not only from critics but also fans. "And we have the right to independent thought". It is clear that he desperately desires what people think of him as a visionary and free thinker, but in actuality it is obvious West desperately desires validation, especially from fellow elites.
