Breitbart: A university professor was fired after he said Hurricane Harvey was “instant Karma” for Texas after voting for President Trump.
Kenneth L. Storey, a professor at the University of Tampa, tweeted out a statement via Twitter which read: “I don’t believe in instant Karma, but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesn’t care about them.”
After Storey’s tweet began to pick up traction on social media, he deleted the statement and released an apology, where he said, “I deeply regret a statement I posted yesterday. I never meant to wish ill will upon any group. I hope all affected by Harvey recover quickly.”
But, as the Tampa Bay Times reports, the apology was not enough for university officials who decided to fire Storey.
“We condemn the comments and the sentiment behind them, and understand the pain this irresponsible act has caused,” University spokesman Eric Cardenas told the Tampa Bay Times. “As Floridians, we are well aware of the destruction and suffering associated with tropical weather.” more
