Yale Dean Who Championed Cultural Diversity Is Outed For Being A World Class Asshat Yelp Reviewer
It’s no wonder that the United States scores just in the middle of the pack on science, math, and reading scores, behind many other advanced industrial nations. Some of these educational figureheads are absolute morons.
Exhibit A: June Chu, dean of Yale’s Pierson College.
June somehow finds time in her busy schedule to moonlight as a Yelp reviewer. Her nasty, snooty, condescending, holier-than-though, culturally insensitive reviews that had been circulating among students for several months, after the Yale Daily News published screenshots on Saturday. The irony here is that Chu, who has a Ph.D. in social psychology, had been a huge champion of cultural sensitivity around campus.
These reviews resemble those of a spiteful, shallow-headed basic chick who needs to get laid.
And that’s just the tip of the ice berg. She goes on to skewer “barely educated morons” and pretty much everyone who doesn’t hold an Ivy League degree.
Chu, whose Yelp account has since been deleted, sent an email to students at Yale to apologize for her “insensitive” reviews.
“I have learned a lot this semester about the power of words and about the accountability that we owe one another,” Chu wrote in the email. “My remarks were wrong. There are no two ways about it. Not only were they insensitive in matters related to class and race; they demean the values to which I hold myself and which I offer as a member of this community.”
We’ll see how that plays, keyboard warrior.
