Carnegie Mellon University in the United States, where Nigerian-born Professor Uju Anya works, has come out to distance itself from her recent tweet on the death of Queen Elizabeth.
In a post on its Twitter 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.”
On the eve of the Queen’s demise, Anya had expressed her wish for the queen to have an ‘excruciating’ death.
Twitter has taken down the tweet.
