Kanye West Got The Boot From Sketchers HQ And His Donda Academy Shut Down For A Second Before Opening Back Up

October 27, 2022 / Posted by:

And the quick fallout of Kanye West‘s purposeful and consistent anti-Semitism continues! Kanye went on a series of insane tirades as usual, but instead of the regular nonsense about how amazing and genius he is, Kanye has lately been really into anti-Blackness and Jewish conspiracies. He claimed he would never be canceled, but then he lost his billionaire status from Forbes after Adidas joined Balenciaga, Vogue, JP Morgan Chase, Gap, and CAA in dropping him. Now it looks like Kanye is searching for a place to sell his bullshit foam slippers to because he hit up Sketchers‘ headquarters. But Sketchers is founded by Jewish people, so maybe he should have looked into that first, as he was promptly escorted off the premises. Oh, and his Christian private school, Donda Academy, announced it was closing before announcing its return a few hours later. Wow, sounds like a stable environment for learning!

CNN reports that yesterday, Kanye walked into a Sketchers HQ in Los Angeles, with a camera, and was shown the exit door. Sketchers released a statement about it:

The company said West, who has legally changed his name to Ye, “arrived unannounced and without invitation.” It said he was engaged in “unauthorized filming” and he was escorted out “after a brief conversation.”

“Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West,” the company said in its Wednesday statement. “We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate antisemitism or any other form of hate speech.”

And it’s not just the shoe world where Kanye seems to be getting escorted out. His unaccredited Christian private school, Donda Academy, which has around 100 students, costs $15,000 a year and has parents sign NDA agreements, also announced its closing for the rest of the school year. TMZ says the school’s principal, Jason Angell, notified all the parents that the school is closing, writing, “at the discretion of our founder, Donda Academy will close for the remainder of the 2022-2023 school year effective immediately.”

Kanye himself weighed in on social media in a since-deleted Instagram post … “Here’s the clout you’re looking for. My school is being shut down.” Hollywood Unlocked was first to report the closure.

In his email to parents, Angell insisted the school plans to reopen in September 2023, adding … “we are confident that our scholars will continue to advance as the creative innovators, influencers and academic leaders of the next generation.”

But then, the school sent another email last night at midnight, telling parents their kids should show up for morning worship because the school, which had been closed for a few hours, was “returning with a vengeance!” via TMZ: 

Parents and students of Donda received an email — obtained by TMZ — around midnight Wednesday reading, “Join us tomorrow morning in worship for the return of Donda Academy. With the help of our parents and community, we are back and returning with a vengeance!”

The email continues, “The children of Donda are going to change the world. Apologies for the late email! See you bright and early!”

You may think that having your education uprooted after only two months is a bad thing but getting your education from a Kanye Skool is worse. The way Kanye has been on attack mode, there is no way this school ever gets accredited. Those diplomas will mean less than a Chuck E. Cheese Graduation certificate!
