Kanye West turned up at the Skechers shoe company in Manhattan Beach, California, on Wednesday in the wake of his split from Adidas, according to the organization.

The rapper and his party had to be “escorted” out of the building by two of the company’s executives “after showing up “unannounced,” the shoe company said in a statement.

Sketchers said West also “engaged in unauthorized filming.”

“Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West,” the company added. “We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech.”

The collapse of West’s brand deals comes after weeks of outcry sparked by the Grammy winner’s violent antisemitic remarks.

Over the weekend in Los Angeles, banners were unfurled on a 405 Freeway overpass by a neo-nazi group that featured antisemitic signs and referenced West.

A slew of celebrities including Lizzo, John Legend, Jaime Lee Curtis and more have publicly criticized West for his comments, while social media support for Jewish people has spread thanks to a campaign kicked off by Jessica Seinfeld.
