The station 105.1 The Bounce says it's pulling West songs off the air after his unhinged tirade saying that slavery was a choice during a TMZ interview.

Rorsted said Thursday that Adidas is against slavery and racism. "Kanye has been, and is, a very important part of our strategy". I understand they were going through some things, but if it's family, you're not going to miss a wedding. That sounds like a choice", he said, which, of course: "It wasn't.

West later tweeted a contradictory statement after the backlash. West appeared volatile and erratic, first admitting that he was addicted to opioids and eventually delivering this jaw-dropping statement: "When you hear about slavery for 400 years - for 400 years?" "You was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all".

West has repeatedly come under fire in recent weeks after praising Trump, criticising Obama, meeting with controversial right-wing pundit Candace Owens and, earlier this week, making controversial comments about slavery. And then he deleted some of the tweets. It's like we're mentally in prison.

Rorsted played down the impact of West's comments, noting that Adidas earned almost $25 billion in its last fiscal year.

I know the music is gonna be fire, every time he drops it's a cultural moment, it's an event.

Kanye West has been in the news a lot as of late.

Trump - who rose to prominence promoting unfounded conspiracy theories on his predecessor Barack Obama's birthplace - quickly cited West as evidence of rising support among minorities. "They don't want nothing to happen to Ye, they just want to beat some sense into me.' I love Daz, I love the Crips, I love the Bloods, I love everyone".

While he stressed how important West was to his brand, Rørsted also added that "there clearly are some comments we don't support". Owens is also the person who the rapper acknowledged on Twitter last week and said he likes the way she thinks.
