A professor at Carnegie Mellon University wished Queen Elizabeth II “excruciating” pain in her passing, according to a tweet posted online.
“I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating,”Uju Anya wrote in a since-removed tweet shortly before the death of the Queen.
The professor didn’t remove the post of her own volition–Twitter removed it for violating community guidelines. Anya, who describes herself as an “antiracist feminist,” has reaffirmed her support for the distasteful remarks in the hours after her post was removed, retweeting many hateful posts and responding to her critics with vulgarities.
“You mean like your p**y?” she responded to a Twitter user who criticized her earlier post.
The professor has a long history of making anti-white racist posts on social media.
“The lengths white people will go to protect white supremacy. We’re all seeing it in front of our face,” she wrote several months ago in response to a news segment about a mother suing her son’s school for advancing Critical Race Theory.
“If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star,” Anya later posted.
A representative with Carnegie Mellon University’s media relations team declined to comment on the professor’s objectionable posts, pointing to the disclaimer in her Twitter bio that states, “Views are mine.”
It’s very disappointing that a professor holds so much hatred in her heart against an elderly woman on her deathbed who led an honorable life and career–and that the university that employs her is apparently unwilling to condemn her hateful sentiment.
