Jeff Bezos Hits Nigeria-Born US Professor Over Tweet Against Queen Elizabeth
Jeff Bezos has unusually slammed a Nigerian – born US professor, Uju Anya over tweet on the late Queen Elizabeth II.
While the Queen was under medical supervision at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, Anya, had expressed her wish for the Queen to have an excruciating death.
She wrote; “I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying,”
Uju Anya, an associate professor of second language acquisition at Carnegie Mellon University, wrote in a tweet on Thursday. “May her pain be excruciating.”
In followups to her initial post elsewhere, the Carnegie Mellon professor defended her tweet in explicit terms.
After one Twitter user wrote “Ewww you stink,” Anya responded: “You mean like your p-ssy?”
Anya also doubled down in a response to Bezos posted just minutes after Elizabeth’s death was confirmed, writing: “May everyone you and your merciless greed have harmed in this world remember you as fondly as I remember my colonizers”.
The Amazon founder quoted Anya’s tweet and wrote; “This is someone supposedly working to make the world better ?”
“I don’t think so,” he added. “Wow”
Anya, a Carnegie Mellon Professor defended her tweet and responded to Bezos, “May everyone you and your merciless greed have harmed in this world remember you as fondly as I remember my colonizers”.
Anya and Carnegie Mellon did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
When another user asked why she would wish Elizabeth dead, the professor wrote: “I’m not wishing her dead. She’s dying already. I’m wishing her an agonizingly painful death like the one she caused for millions of people.”
“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,” Anya added.
Anya’s tweet has been removed by Tweeter for violation of tweeter policies, though it still generates reactions.
