Kanye West Leads Chants of “F*ck Nike” at Yeezy Event
Kanye West made a lot of headlines on Thursday, thanks to his star-studded Yeezy Season 3 show at Madison Square Garden. If you missed it, there was a lot going on.
In between playing music off his new album, The Life of Pablo, Kanye added some commentary. At one point, he thanked Adidas for believing in him. And while you may have expected him to diss Nike at this point, he didn't need to... because the crowd did it for him.
Chants of "F*ck Nike" began echoing through MSG, which Kanye helped lead... with a few even adding "F*ck Jordan", but Ye quickly shut that down.
"Not f*ck Michael Jordan, Michael Jordan is our boy," West replied. "I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Michael Jordan. Respect Jordan."
