Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald announced Tuesday that he has parted ways with Kanye West’s Donda Sports agency after the hip-hop artist made antisemitic comments.
“The recent comments and displays of hate and antisemitism are the exact opposite of how we choose to live our lives and raise our children,” Donald and his wife, Erica, said in a statement. “We find them irresponsible and go against everything we believe in as a family.”
NBA star player Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics also announced Tuesday that he’s leaving West’s sports agency hours after Adidas terminated its business partnership with the rapper known as Ye. CAA talent agency also dropped West as their client earlier this week.
“As parents and members of society, we felt a responsibility to send a clear message that hateful words and actions have consequences and that we must do better as human beings,” the Donalds’ statement read. “We do not feel our beliefs, voices and actions belong anywhere near a space that misrepresents and oppresses people of any background, ethnicity or race.”
