An online petition is calling for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to rescind the honorary doctorate given to Ye, formerly known as Kanye West. So far, eleven-hundred signatures have been collected. Ye has recently been making antisemitic hate speech, which sparked the petition. The SAIC awarded him an honorary doctorate in 2015.
