"We have a Kanye West who is coming back onto the scene and trying to be his most honest self in public. That's where I'm going to leave it".
Mr West sparked fresh outrage on Monday when he appeared on TMZ and claimed slavery over the centuries sounded "like a choice". Since Kanye's comments - and his weak rebuttals -- it seems like everyone with a Twitter account has been chiming in on the debate. Of course, I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will. "It's like we're mentally imprisoned".
Legend also retweeted Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson who said West's statements "fuel the racist, right-wing folks". "Even the statement was an example of free thought It was just an idea".
In an interview with Bloomberg TV today following the company's strong earnings report, Rorsted said board members have not discussed the possibility of cutting ties with West - who spearheads a collaboration with the athletic giant through his Yeezy sneaker line.
Adidas does not disclose how much its Yeezy imprint is worth to its overall business. While it has not been confirmed that he's living with a mental illness, it is important to note that in November of 2016, Kanye was hospitalized for mental health issues and ended his tour. "We continue to promote that strongly", he told CNBC. "If you just hear him say something in 10 seconds or 15 seconds, you're going to think he's lost his mind. West sold tens of thousands of pairs", said Matt Powell, senior industry adviser for sports at NPD Group.

Trump to attend the NRA convention in Dallas
Guns were also banned during Trump's appearance at the NRA's annual meeting in Atlanta a year ago . Cameron Kasky, also a survivor of the shooting, called the NRA "a hilarious parody of itself".
But the rapper said he admired the real estate mogul's audacity to run - and West himself has indicated, with an unclear level of seriousness, that he plans to seek the White House in 2024.
"We are both dragon energy", West wrote on Wednesday.
Ye's profitable relationship with Adidas dates to 2013.
Rorsted did mention, however, that Adidas will "look into other violations of code of conduct" in regard to Kanye, "and then eventually we'll make up our opinion on what we do moving forward". But he said it's not clear whether those deals are really bringing in the additional sales to justify their cost.
