A spokesperson for Boston University told Fox that they didn’t agree with her tweets—“The University does not condone racism or bigotry in any form and we are deeply saddened when anyone makes such offensive statements”—but pointed out that she has a right to express her opinions on her personal Twitter account.

That’s unlikely to quell the tide of hurt feelings; there is, inevitably, a petition calling for Grundy’s firing: “Her radical idealism has created counter productive learning environment at Boston University and has tarnished the namesake of Boston University.” Name. You mean name.
