Kanye West has lost billions, business deals and friends due to his hatred and now he has also lost his honorary degree. Recently, the school of Art Institute of Chicago has forfeited an honorary degree they had earlier awarded to Kanye West.
The college stated that “His anti-Black, antisemitic, and incendiary statements, particularly those directed at Black and Jewish communities, are disgusting and condemnable,” the letter read in part.
“As a community, we know that there are varying opinions on what our School’s response should be––even as we all agree that his behavior is indefensible,” President Elissa Tenny added in the letter.
Kanye West was awarded an honorary degree by the college in 2015 for his contributions and accomplishments to culture and art.
