Beyoncé Reportedly Declined an Offer from Reebok Because of the Pitch Team's Lack of Diversity
Update: In a recent episode of ESPN’s “The Jump,” writer Nick DePaula said Beyonce was previously in talks with Reebok about a potential partnership. He claims she opted out of working with the sneaker brand because of the pitch team\'s lack of diversity.\"She had a meeting at Reebok and they had a whole presentation of everything, potential products, how this could all look,\" he explained, \"and she kinda took a step back and said \'is this the team that would be working on my product\'? And somebody said \'yes\' and she said \'nobody in this room reflects my background, my skin color, and where I\'m from and what I want to do\'. And so she kinda took a step back and left and then, it did not come to terms.\"ESPN Writer @NickDePaula reveals Beyoncé walked out of a meeting w/ @Reebok after she highlighted the pitch team\'s lack of diversity & non-existent representation of her background and skin color. ?He also talks about Bey getting offers from Jordan (@Jumpman23) & @UnderArmour. pic.
