American rapper and singer Kanye West is quite well known for his outspoken views that have received significant media coverage. Often his views have sparked controversies on social media. He also landed in trouble last after several brands fired him for his anti-Semitic comments.
A number of companies that severed connections with him were JP Morgan, Adidas, and Balenciaga. Yet, it appears that those businesses are now having financial and reputational problems since Ye’s collaboration was terminated.
JP Morgan Chase, Kanye aka Ye’s former bank, severed ties with him after he made public criticisms of the organisation. The reported s*xually graphic emails that former JP Morgan Bank CEO Jes Staley exchanged with the late notorious financier Jeffrey Epstein were made public less than four months after Staley dropped the Sneaker mogul, according to a CNN report.
Staley exchanged almost 1,000 emails with Epstein from his JP Morgan Bank email account between 2008 and 2012, according to a US Virgin Islands government probe, while he was being investigated for child s*x trafficking. While Epstein was in jail, Staley would go to Epstein’s home in the Virgin Islands.
