Kanye West has been dropped by his agency after making antisemitic comments on social media and in interviews.
The rapper, 45, had been signed to CAA since 2016.
The documentary's producers MRC Entertainment wrote: "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. We cannot support any content that amplifies his platform.
"Kanye is a producer and sampler of music. Last week he sampled and remixed a classic tune that has charted for over 3,000 years - the lie that Jews are evil and conspire to control the world for their own gain."
The rapper's comments have not just seen him dropped by his agency, but he has found himself in hot water on social media too.
His Instagram account was suspended after he claimed that fellow rapper Diddy, 52, was being controlled by Jewish people.
He subsequently took to Twitter to write in a now-deleted tweet that he was 'going to go death con 3' on Jewish people.
West went on to apparently try to justify his behaviour with a bizarre claim.
"The funny thing is I actually can't be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda," he continued.
In a surprising development, Parler, the 'uncancelable free speech platform', revealed that it was being purchased by West.
"In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial, we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves," West said in a statement about the purchase.
West's fashion career is also suffering as a result of his comments, and he has already been dropped by Balenciaga and Vogue.
People are now calling on Adidas to drop the 45-year-old after he claimed that the brand will not drop him no matter what he says.
"The thing about me and Adidas is I can literally say antisemitic shit and they can't drop me. I can say antisemitic things and Adidas can't drop me. Now what?" he said.
UNILAD has reached out to West's representatives and Adidas for comment.
