The hosts of a US radio show have announced that they will no longer be playing Kanye West‘s music following his recent controversial comments about slavery.
West has repeatedly come under fire in recent weeks after praising Trump, criticising Obama and describing slavery as a “choice”.
“We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that ‘slavery was a choice’”, they wrote.
“We are over it. We don’t want to hear Kanye’s music, we don’t want to play Kanye on our show, we don’t want to talk about Kanye anymore. So we are taking a stand and we aren’t playing his music anymore; we just are refusing to give him a platform.”
Also, a petition recently called for Adidas to sever ties with Kanye over the comments. The company’s CEO Kasper Rorsted responded by saying: “Kanye has been and is a very important part of our strategy. He’s been a fantastic creator, and that’s where I’m going to leave it.”
