Kanye West haven’t had a good week – and rightly so. On the same day that the 45-year-old fallen rapper and fashion designer was booted from Sketchers for “unauthorized filming,” he also received the same kind of reaction from customers at an LA bagel shop. An eyewitness, who asked not to be named, said Hollywood Life EXCLUSIVELY that customers at the bagel shop, which is popular with Jewish residents due to its proximity to a synagogue, “didn’t welcome Kanye at all” during his visit on October 26.

“Kanye was at the bagel shop near one of the largest Jewish synagogues in the area. He was with a friend, and he was trying to be on the DL, but it was hard not to notice Kanye West,” the onlooker told us. “I was there with a friend of mine. At first he smiled and tried to fit right in. When he got his food, he sat down in the corner and kept looking at his phone. When he did look up, he must have noticed that people were staring at him and not in a friendly way.”

According to the eyewitness, the eatery is in a “heavily Jewish-populated area”. As reported, one day before his visit on October 25, Kanye was dropped from Adidas, the company with which he had a multi-billion-dollar collaboration, over anti-Semitic comments he made. Although we chose not to disclose the exact location of the food establishment, the eyewitness told us that it is located very close to a Jewish synagogue. Because of this, they added, “the bagel shop is popular with those who go to that synagogue.”

“Kanye hadn’t even finished his food when he got up to leave and he had to feel the energy, which was not welcoming at all,” they shared Hollywood Life. “As he got into his car, people were whispering under their breath, I heard some people telling him to go home. It wasn’t loud and I don’t know if he heard them. I’m sure this is not how he is used to being treated. He had to know he wasn’t wanted there when he left because he didn’t look happy and others at the bagel place seemed very bothered to see him there.”

As previously reported, Kanye was locked out of his Instagram and Twitter accounts on October 8 and 9, respectively, after he posted that he was going to “def con 3 on Jewish people”. This came less than a week after he caused huge controversy by wearing a shirt that read “White Lives Matter” to his Yeezy Season 9 fashion show at Paris Fashion Week on October 3. During the same week, Kanye was also slammed for falsely saying that George Floyd — whose death at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, sparked the Black Lives Matter movement — actually died of a Fentanyl overdose,

After losing the support of numerous friends in the entertainment, fashion and music industries including Anna Wintour72, at Vogue, Kanye has been dropped from nearly all of his lucrative collaborations and partnerships, including GAP, Adidas, CAA, Balenciaga, and Foot Locker, to name a few. He also faces a $250 million lawsuit filed by the family of George Floyd. On the day of his visit to the LA Bagel shop, Kanye was turned away from Sketchers after Footlocker announced they would no longer carry his products. According to a report in the New York TimesKanye hoped to meet with Sketchers’ corporate executives to discuss a possible collaboration.
