In a letter to TMZ, the Art Institute cites the decision as a result of Ye’s “anti-Black, antisemitic, and incendiary statements, particularly those directed at Black and Jewish communities, are disgusting and condemnable.”

The letter comes from the school’s president, Elissa Tenny, who states, “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.”


Ye received the degree in May 2015 for his accomplishments and contributions to art and culture.
