A new report on Kanye and Yeezy employees leaves the internet divided amid Balenciaga kids and backlash | Wbactive

A new report published by Rolling Stone on Kanye West’s behavior towards his former Yeezy employees has divided the internet.

On Tuesday, November 22, the news outlet shared a report in which they spoke to a dozen former Yeezy and Adidas employees. In the report, some of them claimed the 45-year-old rapper showed them explicit pictures of his then-wife Kim Kardashian.

However, the report comes at a time when luxury fashion house Balenciaga is facing heavy criticism for its new Spring/Summer 2023 collection campaign, which features two little girls holding teddy bears that appear to have BDSM-style harnesses.

The brand, which apologized on its Instagram story, has been criticized online for its “disturbing” and “creepy” campaign that messes with children.

“We sincerely apologize for any offense our Christmas campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been shown with children in this campaign. We immediately removed the campaign from all platforms.”

Meanwhile, other Twitter users simply criticized Kanye West’s behavior towards his former employees, with one even saying the revelation about the rapper wasn’t shocking.

@Rolling Stone @JonesOnTheNBA This is so sad, disappointing, and devastating (although sadly it’s not surprising). My question is why none of this has gotten to reporters until now? I suppose it comes back to the underlying dilemma of emotional abuse but adidas should have done something so long ago smh

@Rolling Stone This is all so shocking 🙄 I never got the draw from him.

What was mentioned in the Rolling Stone report on Kanye West’s behavior?

In Rolling Stone’s Tuesday, Nov. 22 report, several former Kanye West employees detailed the rapper’s professional antics.

According to an interview with one of the people involved with West, the rapper held a meeting with the Yeezy creative team in 2018, where he showed an explicit video of Kim Kardashian.

Another such incident occurred that same year with an anonymous creative meeting with West for an interview. The person stated that the rapper pulled out his phone and showed him an intimate picture of Kardashian and said, “My wife sent me this.”

The anonymous employee said:

“It was very insightful and personal. I didn’t really react.”

The publication also reported that there were incidents of West playing explicit videos that didn’t include Kardashian in front of Yeezy and Adidas members. One of the employees claimed:

“He showed me the video of Francesca Le, a muscular porn star with a strap-on fucking another girl in the ass. He says: ‘What do you think of this?’ Don’t laugh at all.”

Rolling Stone also spoke to two former employees who claimed West showed them explicit videos of him becoming intimate with another woman in his early days at Yeezy.

In September 2022, West opened up about his p*rn addiction in a since-deleted Instagram post, stating that it had “devastated” his family.
