Kanye West brand Yeezy dropped by TJ Maxx after rapper’s antisemitic comments
TJ Maxx is cutting ties with rapper and designer Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, following his recent antisemitic remarks.
The retail giant told FOX Business in an emailed statement on Wednesday that it does not tolerate "discrimination, harassment or hate of any kind."
"We have instructed our buying teams not to purchase this merchandise for sale in any of our stores globally," TJ Maxx said.
This move comes after other companies severed ties with the artist following pressure from social media users.
