Aaron Donald Makes Official Decision On Kanye West's Sports Marketing Agency

Donda Sports, the sports marketing agency run by rapper Kanye West, just lost its lone NFL representative.

Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald announced Tuesday that he is cutting ties with Donda Sports after West made anti-Semitic comments on social media.

Donald, the eight-time all-Pro and three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, had announced in May that he and his wife Erica would partner with West and Donda Sports for representation in his marketing deals.

Donald called West's statements "irresponsible" and said they "go against everything we believe in as a family."

"Our family has made the decision to part ways with Donda Sports. The recent comments and displays of hate and antisemitism are the exact opposite of how we choose to live our lives and raise our children. We find them to be irresponsible and go against everything we believe in as a family.

"As parents and members of society, we felt a responsibility to send a clear message that hateful words and actions have consequences and that we must do better as human beings. We do not feel our beliefs, voices and actions belong anywhere near a space that misrepresents and oppresses people of any background, ethnicity or race.

"We've had the pleasure of working with many incredible people along the way and hope to continue to use our platform to uplift and support other families, children and communities through positive outreach." -- Aaron Donald

Donda Sports' other noteworthy sports clients include Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown and former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Props to Donald for distancing himself from West's hateful rhetoric.
