Two high profile athletes are leaving Kanye West’s sports agency, Donda Sports, in the wake of the artist and businessman’s repeated antisemitic statements.
Aaron Donald, a star football player on the Los Angeles Rams, announced Tuesday that he is leaving the agency.
In a statement shared on Twitter, Donald and his wife Erica said their family decided to leave the company due to “recent comments and displays of hate and antisemitism,” which they characterized as “the exact opposite of how we choose to live our lives and raise our children.”
The couple did not refer to West — who has legally changed his name to Ye — in their announcement.
“As parents and members of society, we felt a responsibility to send a clear message that hateful words and actions have consequences and that we must do better as human beings,” the statement said. “We do not feel our beliefs, voices and actions belong anywhere near a space that misrepresents and oppresses people of any background, ethnicity or race.”
Also on Tuesday, Celtics star basketball player Jaylen Brown tweeted that he was “terminating my association with Donda Sports.”
He also did not refer to West in the announcement.
Aaron Donald is an NFL superstar defensive lineman. I literally never watch the NBA, so I have no idea if Jaylen Brown is actually a big deal in the world of basketball, but let’s assume that he is. Do we really believe that they were sitting with their families absolutely horrified that Kanye West started speaking truths about God’s Chosen Volcano Demon Enjoyers?
On Monday, Brown told the Boston Globe that he planned to stick with the agency.
“The reason why I signed with Donda Sports, it represented education, it represented activism, disruption, it represented single-parent households, and a lot more people are involved in something like that,” Brown said at the time. “A lot of people that I work with, work with their families, build love and respect for, spending time in the summer. A lot of people involved. That’s what the organization from my vantage point from Donda Sports represented.”
It seems even more unlikely, considering that this Jaylen Brown character not only said that he was sticking with /Our Wakandian/ Kanye, but put out a statement confirming that yes, he would be standing by Kanye.
In his Tuesday statement, Brown said he was “able to reflect and better understand how my previous statements lack clarity in expressing my stance against recent insensitive public remarks and actions.”
“I have always, and will always, continue to stand strongly against any antisemitism, hate speech, misrepresentation, and oppressive rhetoric of any kind,” he said.
Then, literally one single day later, he throws Mr. West under the bus. Surely, this must be due to him taking a long cold shower while contemplating his complicity in the oppression of the richest race of people on the planet. He realized that he couldn’t have the blood of a real lampshadocaust on his hands. It was purely based on his moral disposition that –
The departures come the same day that Adidas ended its partnership with West with “immediate effect.”
Or someone behind the scenes talked to these two gentlemen and told them that they would not be enjoying any sponsorships until they started being obedient little housenegros again. Speaking of which.
In two recent polls that were both conducted within the past week, a majority of respondents said that they disagree with Kaepernick’s decision to protest racial inequality and police brutality by not standing for the national anthem.
In one poll, which was conducted by Reuters, 72 percent of Americans said that they thought Kaepernick’s behavior was unpatriotic. Another 61 percent said that they do not “support the stance Colin Kaepernick is taking and his decision not to stand during the national anthem.”
Colin Kaepernick was unpopular. Even voted “most disliked player in the NFL.” Then, years after his career was in the dustbin, Nike decides to make him the face of their corporation.
To be sure, Nike has taken some flak from customers who oppose the NFL player’s actions. Sentiment toward the brand dropped 38 percent Sunday and Monday, according to 4C, but it’s not all bad news.
Nike’s most engaged audience persona is “Made it and Know it,” said 4C Chief Marketing Officer Aaron Goldman, one of 70 categories of consumers that 4C has identified by analyzing social media engagement on a range of platforms. People in that bracket are generally successful in their careers and personal lives, are typically single with robust social lives and like to spend money on entertainment and travel, as well as online streaming services.
“Racial equality is a top concern for this audience, along with causes like clean-water access and gun control,” Goldman said.
Ultimately big business is nothing more than a dictatorship. (((Aaron Goldman))) decided that Kaepernick would be the face of the NFL despite a myriad of anti-White comments. And (((Jonathan Greenblatt))) decided that no corporations would be allowed to use Kanye West to sell product, despite that being profitable. These very same people went around to all these other athletes and told them “we have the power to make sure you never see a cent in endorsements, so bend the knee JeQueerus.”
And once again, the actual peasants like Kanye’s comments. Everyone appreciates bravery when they see it, and even if they didn’t, whatever happened to controversy sells? Well those are just slogans that Schlomo trots out when they want to do something anti-White.
