Jeff Bezos gets in spat with professor who wished Queen Elizabeth an excruciating death

A professor at one of the top universities in America is under fire for celebrating the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

“I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating,” Professor Uju Anya, PhD, of Carnegie Mellon University tweeted after news of the queen’s passing began spreading on social media.

Below is a screenshot of the since-deleted tweet:

Anya, clearly a far-leftist, predictably identifies herself on Twitter as an “antiracist” and “feminist,” two terms often synonymous with hate, ironically enough.

She is, for all intents and purposes, the quintessential critical race theorist, and it shows in both her nasty tweet about the queen and her tweets in general.

As documented by Christopher Rufo of the Manhattan Institute, many of her expressed beliefs are coated in deep, deep, deep anti-white hatred. Yet this blatantly racist and bigoted woman boasts an immense deal of institutional power:

Even Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was taken aback by the dichotomy between her unrepentant hate and the power she wields.

“This is someone supposedly working to make the world better? I don’t think so. Wow,” he tweeted, referencing Anya’s position of influence at one of the world’s top universities.

Incidentally, in response to Bezos’ criticism, Anya chose to preach more hate.

“May everyone you and your merciless greed have harmed in this world remember you as fondly as I remember my colonizers,” she tweeted.

Her tweet boasts over 50,000 likes.


Anya has since doubled and tripled down with more hate, some of it directed at her critics. Of particular note is the maturity — or lack thereof — of many of her replies.

For instance, one critic wrote, “This kind of post is not expected from a person of your level. This is not what you say even to your worst enemy.”

In response, Anya wrote, “F–k you and your deference to genocidal colonizers.”

Another critic wrote, “Ewww you stink.”

In response, Anya wrote, “You mean like your p—y?”

Anya has also doubled down on her hate of the queen (*Language warning):

Carnegie Mellon has for its part distanced itself from her tweets.

“We do not condone the offensive and objectionable messages posted by Uju Anya today on her personal social media account. 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,” the university said in a statement posted to Twitter.

Anya isn’t alone in responding to the queen’s death by celebrating. Zoé Samudzi, an assistant professor at the Rhode Island School of Design, responded similarly:

In an interview with NBC News, history professor Matthew Smith of University College London claimed this hate is rooted more so in anger toward the British monarchy than anger at the queen herself.

“I think when people voice those views, they’re not thinking specifically about Queen Elizabeth. They’re thinking about the British monarchy as an institution and the relationship of the monarchy to systems of oppression, repression and forced extraction of labor, and particularly African labor, and exploitation of natural resources and forcing systems of control in these places. That’s what they’re often responding to. And that’s a system that exists beyond the person of Queen Elizabeth,” he said.

While this may be the case, resentment-fueled hatred is not something to aspire to. Nor is it something that should be emanating from professors and other educators …
