Kanye West launches another social media tirade as he takes aim at designer he claimed mocked Yeezy sock shoes and rants about Adidas

Kanye West went on another social media tirade on Thursday after his new sock shoes were mocked.

The Yeezy Pod Socks, which have been widely mocked for looking like the wearer has stepped out without shoes, have just been made available for pre-order at a cost of $200.

This is Ye’s first release independent of Adidas after the firm severed ties with the rapper and fashion designer in 2022 over his anti-Semitic comments.

Hours after deleting his Instagram account of all posts, the 46-year-old rapper took to his Stories to share a screenshot of a DM he sent to designer Brittany Pierone after he claimed she appeared to be wearing his new product mocked.

Brittany, who used to work for Nike and is the founder of design studio Proof Of Concept, shared a photo days earlier with the Yeezy Pod Socks in the wrong size, making it look like they were clown-sized in nature.

Kanye was quick to message the designer, sharing a photo of his message that read: ‘What the f*ck is wrong with you. Don’t play with me like that. What adidas paid you to post that photo.

“I put so much work into every product and when I’m independent, that’s what you want to put out.”

Referring to a reporter who recently asked him if he was ‘controlling’ his wife Bianca Censori, he added: ‘You’re worse than the TMZ lady.’

He gave good advice and continued: ‘Get a partner. Don’t play with me like that. It’s not funny. I worked on this for a year and put it out myself.’

He continued with a series of baseless claims when he added: ‘Jordan wanted to create his own brand and Nike threatened Footlocker to pull all their shoes from the stores’

‘Adidas copied all my s**t and treated me like s**t. adidas is suing me for 4 billion dollars and selling my shoes without paying me and they said I misused the marketing fund if I do the marketing

‘That’s why they sent me the money in the first place. You have no idea how much work. I put everything into what we do.’

MailOnline has contacted Adidas for comment.

In 2022, Adidas ended a major partnership with Kanye over his statements, discontinued the rapper’s line of Yeezy shoes and moved up the planned departure of its CEO.

In a statement at the time, the company said it ‘does not tolerate anti-Semitism and any other form of hate speech.’

It added his “recent comments and actions were unacceptable, hateful and dangerous, and they violate the company’s values ​​of diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness.”

Days after Adidas parted ways with the rapper, court records showed he demanded that Yeezy return $75 million allegedly deposited into his accounts.

Yeezy refused, and after a week of litigation, Adidas dropped a federal lawsuit seeking to freeze the funds held by Yeezy, announcing that they would only seek the money through private arbitration, Billboard reports.

Kanye’s footwear collaboration with Adidas recorded sales of $1.7 billion (£1.37 billion) in 2021 and is predicted to break the $2 billion (£1.61 billion) mark in 2022. This made it responsible for almost 10 percent of the firm’s entire turnover.

Adidas has now said it plans to sell its remaining Yeezy stock for ‘at least’ production value.
