The fashion house Balenciaga reportedly cut ties with Ye

Fashion house Balenciaga has cut ties with Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, according to a news report.

The move came after several offensive comments by Ye, including anti-Semitic posts, which earned him suspensions from Twitter and Instagram.

“Balenciaga no longer has a relationship and no plans for future projects related to this artist,” parent company Kering told Women’s Wear Daily when asked.

The company did not respond to multiple emails and calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. A representative for Ye also did not respond to a request for comment.

Ye had collaborated in several areas with Balenciaga and his artistic director Demna Gvasalia.

The label also has an active relationship with Kim Kardashian, Yes’s ex-wife, who has appeared in her ad campaigns and credits her ex-husband with introducing her to the brand.

Ye was recently blocked from posting on Twitter and Instagram about anti-Semitic posts that the social networks said violated their policies.

He has also suggested slavery is a choice, calling the Covid-19 vaccine the “mark of the beast”.

After being banned from social media platforms, he has offered to buy far-right social network Parler.

During Paris Fashion Week, the rapper modeled in Balenciaga’s ready-to-wear show – what designer Gvasalia described as an “iconic moment” at the time.

He was then spotted in Givenchy’s collection wearing black Balenciaga brand braces.

Ye was also criticized this week for wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt at his Yeezy collection show in Paris, and the shirt appeared on the catwalk itself.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Centre, which prosecutes hate groups, White Lives Matter is a neo-Nazi group.

In recent weeks, Ye has ended Yeezy’s association with Gap, telling Bloomberg that he plans to cut ties with his corporate suppliers.

Adidas has put its sneaker deal with Ye under scrutiny, and JPMorganChase and Ye have ended their business relationship — although the bank-breakup was in the works before Ye’s anti-Semitic remarks. The fashion house Balenciaga reportedly cut ties with Ye
