In September, Kanye West ended his 10-year partnership with Gap, but existing merchandise would still be available through the first half of 2023. Now, after the rapper’s antisemitic comments, all of his items have been removed from Gap stores and YeezyGap.com has been shut down.

The retailer said in a statement on Tuesday (Oct. 25), “Our former partner’s recent remarks and behavior further underscore why we are taking immediate steps to remove Yeezy Gap products from our stores. Antisemitism, racism and hate in any form are inexcusable and not tolerated in accordance with our values.”
