Kanye West reportedly sacked Yeezy employee for liking Drake

Kanye West has been accused of sacking an employee at Yeezy because he wanted to listen to Drake.

The accusation stems from a new report by Rolling Stone (via NME), which highlights the toxic working atmosphere he created at Yeezy. In the article, an anonymous staff member said it had a “cult-like atmosphere”, and Ye reportedly also mistreat staff.

In the report, a senior staffer said: “Nothing has ever compared to the amount of chaos, the amount of stress and [the amount of] anxiety you go through working for Yeezy.”

Meanwhile, another claimed Kanye liked to play his own music in the office, and in 2015, an employee asked if they could put something else on.. Surprisingly, Ye was open to suggestions, and the staff member told Rolling Stone: “I thought, ‘Oh, he’s a rapper, I should probably mention some rap’. Big mistake — the next day I was fired.”

The report also states a staffer was allegedly fired for wearing a yellow jumper to the office and was told: “Dress for the palette or you dress in black.” Additionally, another former employee said: “Everyone’s always on the verge of losing their job, so the dynamics are total chaos. He doesn’t necessarily have people that he can trust around him.”

Another added: “The biggest issue is that he doesn’t appear to have high-level operational people that he trusts. Without the operational backbone, no company can really exist for a super long time. You can’t build a multi-billion-dollar brand without an operations director who stays in the job for more than six months. … He needs professionals that don’t give a shit that he’s Kanye West.”

Ye is yet to comment on the allegations. He was also recently accused of paying an ex-employee who alleged West praised Hitler.
