US varsity distances self from Uju Anya’s tweet on Queen Elizabeth

Share This

Carnegie Mellon University in the United States, where Nigerian-born professor Uju Anya works, has distanced itself from her recent tweet on the death of Queen Elizabeth.

In a post on its handle on Thursday, the university described Anya’s tweet as “offensive” and distanced itself from it.

The 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.”

Before the Queen’s demise, Anya had expressed her wish for the queen to have an ‘excruciating’ death.’

The tweet has now been removed by Twitter, but still generating reactions on the platform.
