Foot Locker is firing Ye.

Following his anti-Semitic comments, according to Footwear News, the world’s largest retailer is removing shoes created by the rapper and designer formerly known as Kanye West from its racks.

According to the trade site, employees were informed via email that all goods connected to Ye’s Yezee brand should be moved to retail stores’ back rooms until further instructions are given.

In a statement to Footwear News, the athletic-wear giant apparently acknowledged that Yeezy sneakers are being removed from its sales floors.

While we remain a partner with adidas and carry a wide selection of their collections, we will not be supporting any future Yeezy product drops, and we have instructed our retail operators to pull any existing product from our shelves and digital sites.

“Foot Locker, Inc. does not tolerate any form of anti-Semitism or hateful and discriminatory behavior,” the company said.

Adidas, who worked with Ye in 2013 to make his shoe concepts a reality, decided to end their relationship with the musician on Tuesday morning.

Ye has made several anti-Semitic remarks in recent weeks.
