Teyana Taylor Gets Dropped From Adidas Due To Rihanna Twitter Beef [Photo]
The Huffington Post reports; “In February, Teyana Taylor debut her first collaborative sneaker with adidas called the Original Harlem Good Luck Charm adidas. The successful run resulted in fans flocking to stores to buy the black and gold high-top shoes. It also prompted a second collaboration with the G.O.O.D music artist that was suppose to hit stores in November.
When Black Friday came and went without a shoe, fans were wondering when and if the second shoe would ever hit stores. Mind you, just two months before, Taylor got in a trite Twitter altercation with Rihanna over a spoof video of her singing. Words were thrown around, meme’s were made, profile images were changed- and by the end a petition was made for adidas to drop Taylor for an offensive picture of Rihanna’s face after her assault from Chris Brown in 2009 posted up.”
Styleblazer has also confirmed that this is in fact true, here’s what an Adidas rep told them!
“We have ended our relationship with Teyana Taylor and do not have any upcoming product launches with her.”
“All I can say is that adidas partners with athletes and artists who blend well with our brand values. We evaluate our relationships with partners based on the values we hold at adidas and we don’t condone violence of any kind.”
How unfortunate! What are your thoughts on this? Do you think this is fair?
