Creative Artists Agency (CAA) cut all ties with Kanye West on Monday, dropping the famous rapper as a client after his spate of inflammatory comments.

The famous entertainment giant is the latest to drop West following his recent anti-Semitic outbursts on social media and in interviews, according to Deadline. The end of the relationship comes amid widespread calls for a total boycott on West.

The CAA represented West for touring purposes only. They signed with the rapper and business mogul in 2016, but West hasn’t toured a single time since they entered into that agreement, Deadline notes.

Monday was an especially dismal day for West’s business endeavors. MRC studio executives Modi Wiczyk, Asif Satchu and Scott Tenley announced Monday that a completed documentary about West will be shelved, citing his anti-Semitic comments as the reason, according to Variety.

“This morning, after discussion with our filmmakers and distribution partners, we made the decision not to proceed with any distribution for our recently completed documentary about Kanye West,” MRC wrote, according to Variety. “We cannot support any content that amplifies his platform.” (RELATED: Well That Didn’t Last Long: Johnny Depp’s Lawyer Reportedly Drops Kanye West)

High-powered fashion house Balenciaga cut ties with West on Thursday, as his anti-Semitic commentary gripped the headlines, according to TMZ.

Adidas recently came forward to reveal that their business relationship with West was “under review.” The sportswear giant has not yet cut ties with West, but has indefinitely paused all projects involving the rapper, according to CNBC.

West has maintained a defiant attitude in spite of his business ventures crumbling around him. “I can say anti-Semitic things, and Adidas can’t drop me. Now what? Now what?” West taunted, during a recent guest appearance on the show “Drink Champs.” The episode has since been taken down, according to Variety.

Twitter locked West’s account on Oct. 9 after he wrote that he planned to go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.”
