The Yale University dean criticized for posting Yelp reviews that called people “white trash” is leaving her position, according to a report Tuesday. June Chu, the dean of Yale’s residential Pierson College, had been placed on leave after her controversial postings surfaced. Yale’s college paper, which broke the story about the Yelp reviews, reported on Twitter that Chu was leaving. The report didn’t say if she had resigned voluntarily or been fired. In one review, she cited a restaurant as perfect for anyone who was “white trash.” “This establishment is definitely not authentic by any stretch of any imagination and perfect for those low class folks who believe this is a real night out,” Chu wrote. In another post, she said she was surprised that a New Haven, Conn., movie theater had a lack of “sketchy crowds.” Many found her Yelp critiques elitist and offensive. Pierson College Head Stephen Davis announced Chu was leaving in an email to members of the Pierson community, the Yale Daily News reported. Davis said a new dean would be named before the fall semester, the college paper reported.
One word.. Karma. At least this snotty, liberal, elitist university had the wisdom to fire a snotty, liberal, elitist, and clearly (Asian) racist dean.
