Harvard President Claudine Gay resigned amidst controversy, facing accusations of plagiarism and criticism for her handling of issues such as antisemitism.

Following her resignation, liberal college professors defended her on social media, with some attributing the criticism to racial bias.

The controversy also involved her testimony before Congress regarding the Hamas attack on Israel.

The resignation came after nearly 50 allegations of plagiarism were reported, leading to widespread calls for her resignation.

“It is a singular honor to be a member of this university, which has been my home and my inspiration for most of my professional career,” Gay wrote.

“My deep sense of connection to Harvard and its people has made it all the more painful to witness the tensions and divisions that have riven our community in recent months, weakening the bonds of trust and reciprocity that should be our sources of strength and support in times of crisis.”

“Amidst all of this, it has been distressing to have doubt cast on my commitments to confronting hate and to upholding scholarly rigor – two bedrock values that are fundamental to who I am – and frightening to be subjected to personal attacks and threats fueled by racial animus,” she added.

“Racist mobs won’t stop until they topple all Black people from positions of power and influence who are not reinforcing the structure of racism,” Boston University professor Ibram X. Kendi wrote.

“What these racist mobs are doing should be obvious to any reporter who cares about truth or justice as opposed to conflicts and clicks.”

“Claudine Gay was accused among other things of lifting nearly half a page of material verbatim from David Cannon’s 1999 book ‘Race Redistricting and Representation: The Unintended Consequences of Black Majority Districts,’” a community note read.

“The question is whether all these people would have investigated, surveilled, harassed, written about, and attacked her in the same way if the Harvard president in this case would have been White. I. Think. Not.”

“Everyone gets a take on this: Harvard is a ‘public’ institution in that sense,” Princeton professor Arthur Spirling said.

“The tragedy here is how extraordinarily easy this all was for the cultural warriors. Unforced error in Congress, then social media + plagiarism detection software did the rest. Disaster.”

“Harvard has a $50 billion endowment – more than the GDP of Latvia – and they still let a bunch of fascist mouth-breathers bully their president into resigning,” Tulane professor Stan Oklobdzija said.

“Congratulations to American universities on winning the 2024 Neville Chamberlain Award for Excellence in Capitulation.”

“She definitely did not deserve this,” Georgetown assistant professor Amanda Sahar d’Urso said. “I hope she can live her life in peace, for the sake of her mental and emotional well-being. For the rest of us, this is a load of crap garbage and we should be really concerned.”
