The "Everything" lyricist took to his Instagram Wednesday (May 2), posting a picture created by the liberal think tank, Occupy Democrats of Yeezy's notorious MAGA photo, which read "Kanye West says slavery was a choice".
"One thing that bothers me particularly about where we are as a society is sort of the reverence that we have for celebrities outside of the scope of what they do", Lathan commented.
The shoe company is standing behind West, who designs sneakers under the Yeezy brand for Adidas, because he's great for business, Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Thursday.
When you hear about slavery for 400 years. for 400 years? "Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all y'all?"
Adidas announced they will continue to support Kanye West after his recent interview suggesting slavery was a choice which consequently rocked the web earlier this week. "Do you but remember the life that I live is as a real person". And then he deleted some of the tweets. It's like we're mentally imprisoned. "We feel like Kanye has gone too far with his latest statement declaring that 'slavery was a choice.' We are over it", the station wrote on Facebook.

City also moved to 30 wins for the season, matching the record number of Chelsea from last season. City beat West Ham 4-1 and is in sight of a slew of records.
As noted, West remains an important part of adidas' strategy. That's pretty much the party line at this stage. I know the music is gonna be fire, every time he drops it's a cultural moment, it's an event.
Fans of Kanye's music got excited when he tweeted "me and Cudi album June 8th".
"We need to have open discussions and ideas on unsettled pain", he said, per The Independent.
The second source added, "Kanye has been super vocal supporting Trump and it seems there is a motive - one being the release of Chicago inmates ... They don't want nothing to happen to Ye, they just want to beat some sense into me.' I love Daz, I love the Crips, I love the Bloods, I love everyone".
When pressed on the subject, Rorsted acknowledged that "there clearly are some comments we don't support" and said Adidas expects to address the issue with West's team. I don't think he said it with the intention to hurt anybody.
