Carnegie Mellon University issues statement after a professor wishes for Queen Elizabeth II to suffer an ‘excruciating’ death

Carnegie Mellon University issued a statement on Thursday after associate professor of second language acquisition Uju Anya expressed her wish that Queen Elizabeth II of Britain would suffer an “excruciating” death.

“We do not condone the offensive and objectionable messages posted by Uju Anya today on her personal social media account,” the school declared in the statement. “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.”

Anya’s egregious tweet, which was later yanked down by Twitter for violating the platform’s rules, read, “I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.”

In another tweet, Anya said, “I only wish my hatred had the effect on her that her monarchy had on my people.”

And in another post, Anya wrote, “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.”

Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, passed away on Thursday at the age of 96 years old after more than seven decades on the throne.

Prominent figures in the U.K. and beyond lauded the late monarch. U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss called the queen “the rock on which modern Britain was built.” The queen’s eldest son Charles has become Britain’s new monarch, King Charles III.

“Not all religious women vote for Republicans to destroy women’s rights,” Anya declared in a tweet earlier this year. “Black Christian women literally carry the Democratic Party and pro-choice politicians on their backs into office. Trump got 3 SCOTUS Justices, because white women consistently vote to protect white supremacy.”
