If Kanye West is worried about the multiple businesses that have ended relationships with him following his antisemitic comments, he’s not acting like it.
The controversial artist and entrepreneur on Thursday posted a meme on his verified Instagram account that featured the headline “Ye has reportedly cut ties with Kanye West”.
“Had to cut ties bro,” he wrote in the caption.

West, who has legally changed his name to Ye, also posted a note, captioned “Love speech”, to Ari Emanuel, the chief executive officer of entertainment and media agency Endeavor.
“Ari Emmanuel I lost 2 billion dollars in one day and I’m still alive,” the note reads.

“This is love speech. I still love you. God still loves you. The money is not who I am. The people is who I am.”
Emanuel, who is one of the top agents in the entertainment industry, penned an opinion piece for the Financial Times urging businesses to cut ties with and distance themselves from West over his antisemetic comments.
Multiple companies have done just that, most recently Peloton.
Earlier this month, West’s Instagram account was restricted and some content was deleted for violating the company’s policies.
He was then locked out from Twitter less than one day later for posting the antisemitic tweet that’s sparked the current outrage at the controversial rapper.
“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” the 45-year-old tweeted, referring to the US armed forces defense readiness condition DEFCON 3.
