Ye received the degree on May 11, 2015.  A letter from the institution came after students made a change.org petition wanting the removal of Ye’s honorary doctorate after his Alex Jones’ InfoWars interview.

“The School of the Art Institute of Chicago condemns and repudiates Kanye West’s (now know as Ye) anti-Black, antisemitic, racist, and dangerous statements, particularly those directed at Black and Jewish communities,” the school shared in a statement. “Ye’s actions do not align with SAIC’s mission and values, and we’ve rescinded his honorary degree.”

On top of the degree, Ye has lost a plethora of brand deals and was suspended from Twitter following his recent outbursts.
