US Institute Retrieves Kanye West’s honorary degree


Kanye West’s honorary degree rescinded after antisemitic comments

American rapper, Kanye West has lost his honorary degree given to him by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015.

According to TMZ, the degree was revoked from the rapper due to his recent outbursts of antisemitism and otherwise offensive comments.

In a letter written by the president of the school, President Elissa Tenny, She stated that, West’s degree was rescinded because the board found that “his anti-Black, antisemitic, and incendiary statements, particularly those directed at Black and Jewish communities, are disgusting and condemnable”.

The rapper was awarded an honorary doctorate back in 2015 for his accomplishments and contributions to art and culture, but Tenny notes, “his actions do not align with SAIC’s mission and values.”
