As reported by Breitbart, Yale Dean June Chu has been placed on leave after she was forced to apologize for writing offensive Yelp reviews.
“To put it quite simply: If you are white trash, this is the perfect night out for you!” wrote Chu in a review about a Japanese restaurant in New Hampshire.
Chu added that “This establishment is definitely not authentic by any stretch of the imagination and perfect for low-class folks who believe this is a real night out,” while also condemning the restaurant for having Chinese employees.
Stephen Davis, the Head of Pierson College at Yale, sent an email to the college community on Thursday to inform them that Chu had been placed on leave.
He also said that there were other “reprehensible posts” beyond the original two.
“Let me be clear,” Davis wrote, “No one, especially those in trusted positions of educating young people, should denigrate or stereotype others, and that extends to any form of discrimination based on class, race, religion, age, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.”
Davis has not directly addressed Chu’s future with Pierson.
