“Here at Skechers, we delight ourselves on two things, making aesthetic, cosy sneakers at an cheap tag and having zero tolerance for antisemitism,” a Skechers gain performed by Cecily Sturdy said.
Added one other staffer performed by Bowen Yang, “That’s why earlier this week Kanye West confirmed up at our corporate situation of enterprise, asking to work with us. We said ‘no’ and straight away escorted him out of the constructing.”
Whereas noting that Skechers is appalled by West’s “horrific feedback” and vows to never to work with him, Sturdy’s executive added, “But we also desire to original that of all corporations he might maybe well maybe also’ve approached and salvage rejected by, he selected Skechers.”
Stated Yang’s gain, “Two years ago, are you able to imagine the headline, ‘Skechers too beautiful for Kanye?’,” later including, “What would you call a Kanye Skechers shoe anyway, a Skeezy?”
The Skechers team took shots at completely different shoe corporations.
“It took Adidas so many days to raise no longer to work with him. He walked in we were, resolve, buh-bye, door,” Sturdy’s character said, while Yang’s wondered why Crocs has been aloof on West’s feedback.
