Remember the old saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”? Liberal Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar apparently doesn’t abide by that.
In a series of now deleted tweets, Jarrar celebrates respected former first lady Barbara Bush’s death.
PSA: either you are against these pieces of shit and their genocidal ways or you’re part of the problem. that’s actually how simple this is. I’m happy the witch is dead. can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million iraqis have. byyyeeeeeeee.

She went on to laugh at people who responded to the vile Tweets, saying Fresno State would never fire her for what she says because she has tenure.
Newsweek reports that “After receiving more than 2,400 replies, her Twitter account was locked, her brief profile bio changed to, “Currently on leave from Fresno State. this [sic] is my private account and represents my opinions.” In addition, the Fresno State English Department’s website lists her as on “LEAVE.”
Fresno State has responded with this statement, saying they are looking into the matter.

At some point during the tweet rampage, she also gave out “her phone number” which actually turned out to be the number for a mental health hotline.
Apparently Randa Jarrar gave out a phone number last night she said was her own so people would call it and it was a mental health crisis hotline. https://t.co/mPZiQD5OUs

Look, everyone has the right to free speech but use some judgement here – a family is grieving and this helps no one. Also, just because you can say something like this, doesn’t mean their won’t be consequences.
Fresno State should fire her immediately – tenure or not.
