Kim Kardashian fans point out her ties to Skechers after Kanye turned up at HQ uninvited

As the news of Kanye West arriving at Skechers headquarters unannounced spread, fans began pointing out the fact that Kim Kardashian used to be the face of the brand’s Shape Ups line some years back.

It’s been a rough few weeks for Kanye ever since he made “antisemitic” remarks in a tweet on Saturday, October 8.

In a now-deleted tweet, the rapper wrote, “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE. The funny thing is I actually can’t be anti-Semitic because black people are actually Jews also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to blackball anyone who opposes your agenda.”

In the weeks that followed both Kanye’s wealth and public image suffered major blows. Adidas, his biggest collaborator dropped his brand Yeezy, leading to the rapper’s fall from his billionaire status (per Forbes).

Now even Skechers has refused to ally with Kanye’s Yeezy.

Kanye West is escorted out of Skechers HQ

TMZ reports that Kanye showed up at Skechers headquarters unannounced and uninvited to find a new home for his brand Yeezy.

Sources told the outlet that the Donda rapper was at the company’s main office on Wednesday, October 26 morning of Manhattan Beach, CA. However, he did not have a scheduled meeting.

As per TMZ, Skechers said, Ye “arrived unannounced and without invitation at one of Skechers’ corporate offices in Los Angeles. Considering Ye was engaged in unauthorized filming, two Skechers executives escorted him and his party from the building after a brief conversation.”

Ironically Skechers is owned and operated by a Jewish family. Its founder and owner are Robert Greenberg and his son Michael is the current President.

Ye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian was once the face of Skechers

Many current Kardashian fans may not know this but the SKIMS founder was the face of Skechers back in 2011. It was a simpler time, Kim was still a budding reality star and wasn’t married to Kanye yet.

Kim promoted the brand’s ShapeUp line and starred in a memorable advertisement that played during Superbowl.

The ad sees Kim telling her hunk of a trainer that things just aren’t working. “Well that’s not completely true, I am working out.”

“It’s not someone else, it’s something else,” she says before showing her Skechers ShapeUp shoe.

Fans throwback to Kim’s Skechers collab amid Kanye drama

“My wife pointed out that Skechers are “Team Kim” one Twitter user jokingly wrote sharing Kim’s Skechers poster.

“The same Skechers that Kim Kardashian had a deal with a few years ago? Interesting,” a second person said.

“Let’s not forget that before there was Yeezy, Kim K was selling Shape-Ups by Skechers,” said a third user.
