Kayne west

Kanye West’s clothing and sneaker brand Yeezy received a loan from the federal governments pandemic rescue fund worth between $2 million and $5 million, helping it save 106 jobs, according to data released by the U.S. Treasury Department on Monday.

Yeezy, best known for its $250 sneakers, just announced a major deal with Gap that will have the rap superstar designing hoodies and T-shirts that will be sold in the chain’s 1,100 stores around the world.

This weekend, West announced on Twitter that he was running for president.

Some other well-known fashion and retail names whose business was pummeled by store closings across the country also received the 1% loans that can be forgiven if worker-employment goals are met.

The list included high-end designers Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang and suit maker Hickey Freeman, all of which got loans in the $2 million to $5 million range.

Untuckit, a shirt retailer with 85 locations, had two loans between $5 million and $10 million.

The uproar over kayne recieving this money is awful he is a business owner and entitled to this money as much as every other business owner, for the simple reason he invested his own money to set up this business, he works hard to keep it going and like all business owners the pandemic will effect him as much as every other business owner
