Kanye West has been dropped by CAA, Creative Artists Agency, over his instigation of anti-Semitism beginning with his constant hate mongering comments.
CAA is the latest company to break ties with West. I’m hoping Universal Music Group does the same, as soon as possible. We are still waiting for Adidas to end their business relationship.
The LA Times first reported this news.
Variety also reports that their business partner, MRC Productrions, has scrapped a completed documentary about West.
MRC studio executives Modi Wiczyk, Asif Satchu and Scott Tenley announced in a memo Monday:
“This morning, after discussion with our filmmakers and distribution partners, we made the decision not to proceed with any distribution for our recently completed documentary about Kanye West. We cannot support any content that amplifies his platform,” they wrote. “Kanye is a producer and sampler of music. Last week he sampled and remixed a classic tune that has charted for over 3,000 years — the lie that Jews are evil and conspire to control the world for their own gain.”
MRC added: “The silence from leaders and corporations when it comes to Kanye or antisemitism in general is dismaying but not surprising. What is new and sad, is the fear Jews have about speaking out in their own defense.”
In the last few days, both William Morris Endeavor and United Talent Agency also denounced West and all forms of anti-Semitism.
