Carnegie Mellon University, US has reacted to a tweet by Nigerian-born professor, Uju Anya calling out Queen Elizabeth II.
Anya works at the University. Reacting, the University distanced itself from her recent tweet.
Recall that while the queen was under medical supervision at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Thursday, Anya, had called for her to suffer excrutiating pain.
Anya was expressing anger over the role Britain and the Queen played in Africa during colonialism; and also the part the country played during the Biafran war.
Her tweet generated a lot of reactions on Twitter, with billionaire, Jeff Bezos also defending the Queen.
In a post on its handle on Thursday, the university described Anya’s tweet as “offensive and objectionable” and distanced itself from it.
The terse tweet read, “We do not condone the offensive and objectionable messages posted by Uju Anya today on her personal social media account. Freedom of expression is core to the mission of higher education, however, the views she shared absolutely do not represent the values of the institution, nor the standards of discourse we seek to foster.”
