Twitter responds to Kanye claiming he makes more money off sneakers than Mike

Twitter responds to Kanye claiming he makes more money off sneakers than Mike

Kanye’s back at it on Twitter.

This isnt the first time Kanye has made a ludicrous statement on Twitter – and it definitely won’t be the last. In case you missed it, here it is below:

This was then followed by some famous Kanye rambling;

“the desert rat 500 sold 250 thousand in one hour on Coachella weekend. Please do not try to play Yeezy or anyone who wears Yeezy. We are the future.”

“the Yeezy 700 is adidas most requested shoe. adidas have been great partners and they’ve let Yeezy be Yeezy. This could’ve never happened at Nike.”

This isnt hte first time Yeezy has taken a shot at Mike and co., with Kanye’s 2015 track ‘Facts’ claiming that Yeezy jumped over Jumpman’. While adidas did overtake Jordan brand partially last year, the Yeezy brand did not infact pass Jumpman in sales, nor has it come to fruition since.

According to Forbes, Michael Jordan’s net worth went up to $1.65 billion last year, while his Nike deal earned him around $110 million. This makes it highly unlikely that Kanye has passed Mike, but hey – it’s classic Yeezy – it’s definitely got us, and the internet taking.

And yes, the internet wasted no time in calling bullshit on Kanye’s claims,

This guy was certain Kanye was full of shit.

I don’t even know what this is, but it got a good chuckle from the office.

Someone drew the strikingly accurate comparison between BBB’s Lavar Ball’s marketing statements and Ye’s.

But if we look at the real numbers – we all know Mike would have the last laugh.
