Carnegie Mellon College points a proper assertion condemning a professor who wished Queen Elizabeth II “excruciating ache” after her demise
Carnegie Mellon University has issued an official statement following the controversial remarks made by university official Uju Anya. Carnegie Mellon University says it “does not condone her offensive and obnoxious messages” as many call for Anya’s suspension or termination.
Carnegie Mellon University is making it clear it will not tolerate, support or condone the highly controversial statements made by school professor Uju Anya. In a formal statement posted to the school’s official Twitter account, Anya’s remarks were addressed head-on.
“We do not condone the offensive and offensive messages posted by Uju Anya on her personal social media account today. Freedom of expression is at the core of higher education’s mission, but the views it shared represent absolutely neither the values of the institution nor the standards of discourse that we aim to promote,” the statement said.
After a mountain of backlash, including from the world’s richest man, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Twitter removed several of Uju Anya’s tweets — notably one that read, “I hear the supreme monarch of a thieving, raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May their pain be excruciating.”
Another tweet, also removed by Anya, read: “This wretched woman and her bloodthirsty throne fucked generations of my ancestors on both sides of the family and she oversaw a government that aided the genocide my parents and siblings suffered have survived. May she die in agony.”
So far, Carnegie Mellon University has not publicly stated whether or not it plans to pursue disciplinary action against Uju Anya based on its messages.
