Hollywood talent agency CAA has cut ties with Kanye West after his antisemitic tirade

CAA, a prominent Hollywood talent agency, has ceased representing Kanye West amid a growing boycott of the rapper.

According to a person familiar with the situation, the agency ended its relationship with Ye this month as a result of his recent antisemitic outbursts in various interviews.

CAA is the latest company to cut ties with Ye due to his comments.

Other prominent figures in the entertainment industry, including Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel, have called on all companies that work with the musician to cut ties with him after he tweeted that he wanted to go “death con 3” on Jewish people.

Kanye’s antisemitic views has made it nearly impossible for companies to defend working with him, causing some brands such as Balenciaga, to cut ties with him.

J.P. Morgan and the Gap have also parted ways with the rapper.

His record deal with longtime label Def Jam has reportedly come to a close as well.

There is also mounting pressure on Adidas to cut ties with Kanye.

Ye has been with CAA since 2016, after leaving the agency for a year in 2015 for UTA.
