With Adidas, CAA, Gap Gone – pressure mounts on Universal Music Group to Drop Kanye West from Label. The man behind Kanye’s boycott is CEO Ari Emanuel today who called on companies doing business with Kanye West to end their relationships.
Emanuel wrote, “Those who continue to do business with West are giving his misguided hate an audience. There should be no tolerance anywhere for West’s anti-Semitism,” Emanuel wrote in a Financial Times piece. “This is a moment in history where the stakes are high and being open about our values, and living them, is essential. Silence and inaction are not an option.”
