Just a few years ago, Kanye West seemed to be on top of the world. However, over the last three years, it seems (despite his claims of liberation) all the things he said he valued are being stripped from him.
He lost his wife, his lucrative fashion partnerships, many of his friends, and about 6.55 billion dollars, and now, he could lose one of his doctorate titles in his hometown.
According to NSEMGH,an online petition has been circulating asking for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to take back the honorary doctorate they gave to the Grammy Award-winner in 2015.
The protest was sparked after Ye started publicly spewing antisemitism rhetoric.
As a result, West lost his deal with Balenciaga and Adidas, which dropped his already diminished wealth from 1.2 billion dollars to 500 million dollars.
Over 11,000 signatures have been added to the petition.
While some people are getting their doctorates taken away, others are gaining them.
