Chaffetz: Prosecutors Aren't Dealing With Threats Against Members of Congress


UPDATE: The university later said Dettwyler, an adjunct professor, would not be rehired.


A college professor is receiving backlash for saying that Otto Warmbier "got exactly what he deserved."

The University of Virginia junior died Monday after spending 17 months in a North Korean prison and being brought home in a comatose state. He had been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for stealing a propaganda poster from his hotel while visiting the country.

"Otto is typical of the mindset of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueles [sic] males who come into my classes," anthropology professor at the University of Delaware Katherine Dettwyler wrote on her Facebook page on Tuesday.

People from across the country have called for her to be fired, some saying on Twitter that they would not send their children to the university.

The professor said students like Warmbier cry about their grades and think they can get away with anything, including raping women. It is unclear how she was relating rape to Warmbier's case.

"You throw around the word 'white' in a way that would get you fired if you talked that way about the black kids," a commenter on her post offered.

Dettwyler wrote that instead of feeling sorry for Warmbier people should think of the people in North Korea "suffering under the repressive government there."

Some of her students described Dettwyler on RateMyProfessors.com as “very opinionated,” “obnoxious,” and said she “hates America.”

The University of Delaware released a statement condemning her sentiments, but so far has not terminated her.
