Ye is seemingly in the midst of revamping his team.

Kanye West has been criticized for a while now due to the fact that he had Milo Yiannopoulos as his chief of staff over at Yeezy. Overall, this was a problem for people due to Milo's questionable beliefs. He rose to prominence during the lead-up to the first Donald Trump Presidency. He fancied himself as a "provocateur" who constantly spewed racist, misogynistic, and downright white nationalist beliefs. Eventually, Milo was shunned from the Conservative movement after some poorly thought-out comments about child abuse on the Joe Rogan Podcast.

It feels like no coincidence that Milo was hired by Ye at the same time that the artist was going through his Nazi phase. However, after two years, Milo is walking away from the company. According to TMZ, Milo sent in a resignation letter as he simply cannot be a part of a company that is getting into the porn business. Milo claims Yeezy Porn has the potential to be "an imminent danger to my life as a recovering addict and an unacceptable risk to my spiritual and physical health as a former homosexual."

Kanye West Is Changing Things Up

As TMZ reports, Ye has been cleaning house over at Yeezy, and is bringing in a whole new team. Milo isn't so sure this is a good idea. Although he did say that he would be willing to go back to Yeezy. But only if Ye were to get out of the porn business. Recently, it was suspected that Ye changed his mind on the porn idea. However, it appears as though he is moving forward, as originally planned.
