Kanye West slammed Zappos for selling ‘s–t’ product. But the online retailer of shoes and other items took it in stride.
Online retailer Zappos created a witty riposte to Kanye West‘s complaints about them.
On novelist Bret Easton Ellis’ podcast Monday, West slammed the CEO of the shoe retailer for selling a “s–t product.”
“I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on,” the 36-year-old rapper said. “Meanwhile, he sells all this s–t product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling s–t product.”
In response, Zappos launched a new “s–t” product page on their site, featuring a toilet and plunger for a mere $ 100,000.
Zappos responded to Kanye West’s recent rant by creating a ‘s–t product’ page.
Tony Hsieh, the Zappos CEO, released a statement on the matter: “Yes, it’s true that we sell s-t product,” directing readers to the new page.
The description of the toilet also ribbed West through some of his own lyrics:
“This is the throne, everyone has been watching,” it reads. “Whether you’re #1 or #2, your clique will show no mercy, even in Paris.”
“Avoid storms,” the description concludes.
