Adidas dropper Kanye West. Balenciaga dropped Kanye. But Antonio Brown is speaking out in support of Kanye West.
Antonio Brown Statements
In a recent statement Brown said, “the world’s reactionary and selective outrage at comments in the media made by my brother, Ye, have inflamed and sparked rampant conversation and reflection.”
“The people and brands that have relentlessly profited from Black ideas and Black culture chose to distance themselves at a very specific time: a time that demonstrated their prioritization of certain groups over others.”
Brown went on to say, “None of us in this world are free of judgment, yet we live in a time where scrutiny and pessimism have driven our dialogues on cultural issues toward diatribes.”
“Sensationalism and groupthink have forced people to not speak their minds and act out in fear rather than love. For these reasons, I stand by my dedication to freedom of speech, thought, and opinion.”
“I remain committed to bringing new ideas, experiences, and designs to our world I remain in support of the humanity that is Ye.”
These statement come in response to Aaron Donald and Jalen Brown leaving Donda Sports.

Antonio Brown is probably not the best spokesperson to be in Kanye’s corner. Brown has also had some questionable moments in the spotlight.
Mental health is a major talking point in todays society. Kanye West has admitted struggles with his after his mother passed away. But Kanye also predicted a lot of how he would be treated if he spoke out. Were his statements a self fulfilling prophecy? Or is there some merit to his views on Hollywood and the entertainment machine? Ill leave that to you to decide for yourself. Needless to say Kanye is Kanye and will always be Kanye.
