(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In the wake of Queen Elizabeth’s recent death, Twitter allowed a leftist sociology professor to wish maximal suffering on the 96-year-old monarch because some British people behaved poorly at times during her 70-year reign, Twitchy reported.
“I heard the chief monarch of a thieving and raping genocidal empire is finally dying,” wrote Carnegie Mellon professor Uji Anya—whose areas of research include “Blackness in multilingualism.”
“May her pain be excruciating,” Anya added.
The post was a direct violation of Twitter’s so-called community standard regarding “abusive behavior.”
According to the written policy, “We do not tolerate content that wishes, hopes, promotes, incites, or expresses a desire for death, serious bodily harm or serious disease against an individual or group of people,” Twitter claims.
It further says that the rule includes but is not limited to: “Hoping that someone dies as a result of a serious disease e.g., ‘I hope you get cancer and die.'”
Nonetheless, Twitter allowed the post to remain for some time before removing it and appeared to have taken no further repercussions against Anya, whose account remained active on Friday.
Carnegie Mellon issued an apology statement soon thereafter.
“We do not condone the offensive and objectionable messages posted by Uju Anya today on her personal social media account,” they wrote. “Free 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.”

Unwilling to give any ground to her employer, Anya doubled-down on her previous statement.
“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.”
Conservative journalist and accountability watchdog Christopher Rufo called out Anya for her disprespectful hot take.
“Uju Anya is a critical race theorist at Carnegie Mellon University,” Rufo wrote.
She believes that "white women consistently vote to protect white supremacy" and that white mothers of biracial children have "Mandingo bbc fantasies of Black men" and regularly call their own children the n-word. pic.twitter.com/hvfuybbtRZ

“Se believes that ‘white women consistently vote to protect white supremacy’ and that white mothers of biracial children have ‘Mandingo bbc fantasies of black men’ and regularly call their own children the n-word,” he continued.
Rufo concluded by pointing out the horrible system that we have built which gives people like Anya status and prestige.
“We have created an entire bureaucratic infrastructure that elevates the most mediocre, hateful, and psychologically disturbed people in our society to positions of influence over the education of millions of American children. Not a recipe for success!”
