California Tenured Professor Celebrates Barbara Bush Dying: 'I'm Happy the Witch Is Dead'

An English professor at Fresno State is facing heavy criticism after a series of tweets delighting in Barbara Bush's death.

" F-k outta here with your nice words", she wrote in a tweet.

According to Newsweek, Jarrar also tweeted, "If you'd like to know what it's like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion, look at the racists going insane in my mentions right now". She is an English professor at the school.

According to the Fresno Bee, Jarrar encouraged her critics to tag Castro in tweets, and wrote, "What I love about being an American professor is my right to free speech, and what I love about Fresno State is that I always feel protected and at home here".

After news broke that Barbara Bush had passed away Tuesday, many Americans were mourning and remembering her life, while others were gleeful about trolling.

He extended his condolences to the Bush family and said the university shared the "deep concerns" over Jarrar's comments.

Fresno State released a statement via Twitter the same evening, saying that Jarrar's statements were made as a private citizen and not as a representative of Fresno State. "Please know the university is taking this matter very seriously, and the incident is under review", she said.

Former president Bill Clinton, the man who once campaigned against her husband, called her "a remarkable woman" with "grit & grace, brains & beauty". She had requested a personal leave of absence at the beginning of the year, but is scheduled to teach again in the fall.

A #boycottfresnostate hashtag appeared on Twitter, and some people are calling for donations to the school to stop until or unless Jarrar is fired.

She later wrote: "If you'd like to know what it's like to be an Arab American Muslim American woman with some clout online expressing an opinion, look at the racists going insane in my mentions right now", according to The Fresno Bee.

One can certainly argue that Jarrar has a right to express her opinion under the First Amendment.

Jarra, a professor at Fresno State, took to Twitter to slander Mrs.

Jarrar's comments that she could not be fired for her tweets because she is a tenured professor were countered Wednesday by Zelezny, who told the press that in fact a professor can be fired in spite of their tenure.
