It's about time.
'Culturally Sensitive' Asian trash Yale dean apologized after screenshots of her Yelp reviews circulated amongst students of various melanin and socioeconomic levels.
According to her self-report, Dean June Chu is a powerful advocate of diversity and "cultural sensitivity," except when Yelping about crappy restaurants. In a Yelp review she referred to customers of a restaurant as "white trash" and "low class folks" and to some of the employees of the establishment as "barely educated morons."
In other words, June Chu sucks and, failing to provide anything more than casual observation of staff she claimed have the IQ of a mentally retarded person, provided some evidence that she may be using the psychological mechanism of projection (projecting undesirable feelings or emotions onto someone else) in order to defend from feelings of her own inadequacies.
Or maybe she just sucks.
Chu's Yale profile page says that she "has sought to help students not only succeed academically but to support their holistic academic experience and multifaceted identities."
Something kind of smells bad.
Back to her Yelp reviews: Chu basically thinks of New Haven, Connecticut, where Yale is located, as a total sh**hole where she always gets poor customer service everywhere she goes, even when she doesn't piss off the restaurant staff with her attitude.
She gave a positive review to a movie theater for "not having sketchy crowds (despite being in New Haven)."
In a review of a Japanese restaurant the champion of diversity wrote: "If you are white trash, this is the perfect night out for you!" She also wrote that a store that sells mochi would only be good to a "white person who has no clue what mochi is."
To further demonstrate just how much Chu sucks, she wrote a review about another movie theater: "Good lord (sic) talk about idiocy and incompetence. Why the hell in this day and age would there be no separate line for just tickets? So what they have is barely educated morons trying to manage snack orders for the obese and also try to add $7 plus $7."
Students learned of Chu's disgusting Yelping past after she sent out a college-wide email bragging about becoming "Yelp Elite," (which people who have nothing better to brag about think of as a huge accomplishment and comes from writing a lot of reviews).
She deleted her Yelp account when she was outed.
On Saturday, Chu, in order to save her job so that she can continue going to crappy local establishments, sent out a letter of apology to the students who outed her.
In typical hypocritical (aka leftist) fashion, she wrote: "I have learned a lot this semester about the power of words and about the accountability that we owe one another. My remarks were wrong. There are no two ways about it. Not only were they insensitive in matters related to class and race; they demean the values which I hold myself and which I offer as a member of this community."
But if she has been Yelping like this for so long, how can anyone believe that she holds herself to the values she claims to hold? And a Yale Dean is just now learning about the power of words?
No. The only thing Chu learned is about the power of social media and that there are consequences for our actions--just not hers.
Luckily for her, she works at a leftist and elitist school where as long as you're in lockstep with their politics, your statements about "white trash" and "morons" don't get you fired, much less disciplined.
