We have to deal with the marginalization that's come from the 400 years of slavery that you said for our people was a choice. "Kanye and Yeezy is a very important part of our brand from a revenue standpoint.It's a very important part of how we promote our products, particularly in the USA and other parts of the world".

When pressed by the Bloomberg TV host on his take of Kanye's comments, Rosted refused to elaborate, saying, "Kanye has been a fantastic creator and that's where I'm going to leave it".

The 40-year-old was being interviewed by TMZ when he made the controversial statements which have since been pilloried by many news outlets. "You was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all".

"There clearly are some comments we don't support", Rorsted said, but stopped short of distancing Adidas from Kanye and his Yeezy Boost imprint with the sportswear brand.

After West's comments went viral, Sensabaugh, who is running as an Independent for mayor of Sullivan County, Tennessee, told TMZ Sports that he agrees with West's comments on slavery.

"My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved", he added.

Some of those tweets have since been deleted.

As you've likely seen, the Famous rapper has caused quite a bit of controversy with his seemingly right wing political opinions and outlandish social media behavior. In a recent post, he also said that people should "Agree to disagree", the most mainstream statement I have heard concerning American politics. That's pretty much the party line at this stage. "I know my man needs some help and if you need me call me".

"Dragon Energy? Hell yea, I want some of that!"

"We need to have open discussions and ideas on unsettled pain", he said, per The Independent.

But the rapper said he admired the real estate mogul's audacity to run - and West himself has indicated, with an unclear level of seriousness, that he plans to seek the White House in 2024.

This is not the first time there was an uproar on Twitter when a black man showed signs of being mentally unstable.

He later explained that Kanye's just being Kanye and as soon as people accept that, they'll be "more comfortable you'll be when you slide back into your Yeezy's".
