Oh, Kanye West does it again. ..
In a recent podcast interview with famed writer of ‘American Psycho’ Bret Easton Ellis, ‘Loose-Lipped’ Kanye name drops again. After discussing several topics including movies, to music, and everything in between, Mr. West gets on the topic of the online store, Zappos.
Apparently the CEO of Zappos.com, offered Kanye some advice he wasn’t particularly into hearing. During the conversation Ye explains:
“I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on. Meanwhile, he sells all this shit product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling shit product.”
Zappos didn’t sweep the remark under the rug.
Good thing the folks at Zappos.com have a sense of humor. After being publicly called out by Kanye West in one of his recent podcast interviews, for selling ‘Shit Products’, Zappos fires back with witty ad for what is indeed a ‘shit product’.
Zappos released a short yet funny fake ad offering an $100,000 toilet, equipped with a plunger. The item was actually featured on their including this description:
“Interested in buying shit product? You’ve come to the right place! Here at Zappos.com, we happily sell sh-t products to everybody! This is the throne, everyone has been watching. Whether you’re #1 or #2, your clique will show no mercy, even in Paris.”
Looks like someone isn’t afraid of the ‘Big Bad West’. Do you think Zappos served Kanye what he deserves?
