Kanye West is no stranger to controversy. West has had multiple run-ins with the woke crowd, escalating when Donald Trump took office. Kanye had the audacity to support Trump, permanently putting a target on his back. Luckily for him, he is too big to cancel.
Despite his status as the left’s biggest social pariah, Kanye has continued making hits, and selling his exclusive line of “Ye” clothing, famously selling them out of trash bags at the Gap. West’s bouts with his mental health and his struggles with Kim Kardashian have all been well documented, with leftists taking every pot shot possible to label Kanye as crazy, a bigot, homophobic, or even worse, a conservative! Nothing has really swayed his influence and reach in the clothing and rap industry.
Recently after a questionable Twitter tirade mentioning Jewish people, Ye’s bank JP Morgan Chase decided to cut ties with him and his brand. An odd move considering JP Morgan Chase stood by Jeffrey Epstein despite internal warnings to cut ties.
When compliance officers at JPMorgan Chase conducted a sweep of their wealthy clients a decade ago, they recommended that the bank cut its ties to the financier Jeffrey E. Epstein because his accounts posed unacceptable legal and reputational risks.
Yet Mr. Epstein, who had been charged with sex crimes and pleaded guilty in 2008 to solicitation of prostitution, remained a JPMorgan client until 2013.

Perhaps the banking giant is trying to change their perception after backing the pedophile Epstein, by dumping Kanye West because of a couple of questionable Tweets. Is JP Morgan Chase really fooling anyone though? They held onto one of the grossest serial pedophiles in our lifetime for his money despite all of the warning signs and internal memos. Is dumping West going to make everything better?
Candace Owens, who is Kanye’s new spokesperson of sorts revealed a letter sent to West by the bank.
The letter shared by Owens reads: “We are sending this letter to confirm our recent discussion with [redacted name] that JPMorgan Chase Bank, N. A (the “Bank”) has decided to end its banking relation with Yeezy LLC and its affiliated entities.”
According to the picture shared by Owens, the bank asked West to transfer his business to another financial institution “before November 21.” The letter added that any accounts open past this date would be closed with the remaining funds returned via check.
Wow, isn’t JP Morgan Chase just the best, most forthright, upstanding business you have ever seen? Nope. They are a bunch of hypocrites looking to cull favor from the woke left by cashing out a black man. I hope they send Kanye his billions in the form of one of those giant checks they give lottery winners.
For Kanye’s part, his relationship with large corporate entities has been going south for some time, and he is all for it.
“It’s time for me to go it alone,” he said. “It’s fine. I made the companies money. The companies made me money. We created ideas that will change apparel forever. Like the round jacket, the foam runner, the slides that have changed the shoe industry. Now it’s time for Ye to make the new industry. No more companies standing in between me and the audience.”
Last month, West said he terminated the contract between his company, Yeezy, and Gap Inc. “Everyone knows that I’m the leader, I’m the king,” West told CNBC. “A king can’t live in someone else’s castle. A king has to make his own castle.”
It’s rumored that other corporate sponsors like Adidas are looking to terminate with West, but is it for moral reasons, or because they know he is going to dump them? Same question with JP Morgan Chase. perhaps this was a preemptive move to dump West before he had a chance to do it to them. “You can’t fire us, we quit” type scenario.
Either way, JP Morgan Chase has just cemented their reputation as hypocrites in light of their dealings with Jeffrey Epstein. Dumping West now like Twitter, Instagram, and all of the other corporations attempting to save face is a bad look, and the American people will see right through it.
