In recent years, a number of high-profile celebrities have been dropped by major brands after making controversial remarks or engaging in questionable behavior. From Ye losing his Adidas and Gap deals to Disney dropping Johnny Depp and Chanel cutting ties with Kate Moss in her party days, these celebrities have all experienced the repercussions of their actions.
In 2018, Adidas and Gap both ended their partnerships with Kanye West after he made a series of controversial remarks. During a TMZ interview, West said that slavery was a “choice” and made a number of other inflammatory statements. Following the backlash, Adidas and Gap both released statements saying that they no longer supported West’s views and had ended their relationships with him.
In 2020, Disney dropped Johnny Depp from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise after allegations of domestic abuse against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Although Depp denied the allegations, Disney decided to move forward with a new actor for the role.
In 2006, Chanel cut ties with Kate Moss after photos of her using cocaine surfaced in the media. Although Moss apologized for her actions, Chanel decided to end their relationship with her.
These are just a few examples of celebrities who have been dropped by major brands due to their controversial remarks or behavior. While it is understandable that companies want to protect their image, it is important to remember that everyone makes mistakes and that people should be given a chance to redeem themselves.
