Kevin Allred — AKA the Montclair State University professor who taught a class on Beyoncé — has been fired from the university as a result of his hate speech against President Donald Trump.

Allred was dismissed from Montclair State University in New Jersey before he even began teaching there, and revealed on Friday night in a series of now-deleted tweets that he'd lost his job before it began.

After tweeting, “Trump is a f**king joke. I wish someone would just shoot him outright,” Allred admitted that he'd been dismissed as a result of his comments about the president.

“So FYI ... Montclair State has fired me before I even started teaching there,” Allred wrote on Twitter Friday evening. “When universities cave to basic conservative political pressure like this, they’re firmly taking a side.”

He continued, “It’s funny cuz in my interview [Montclair State was] super excited about me being young, hip, and calling out power. Guess not in practice, huh?”

“This was all after they promised me work & had me spend weeks creating syllabi for classes they wanted me to teach," he said. "Very classy, Montclair."

Allred also took aim at Trump supporters in his rant.

"[G]lad you all [love] Trump cuz in past 2 hours his 'fans' have called me 'f**king f****t, 'c**t' & warned my throat wld get slit while i slept," he wrote, according to Twitchy.

"[T]his is not the f**king gross and politically regressive world i want to live in," he added. "[T]rump's base lashes out and everyone listens. disgusting." Allred later said, "[S]peaking out against Trump's 'great America' keeps me from classrooms," and punctuated his comments with a side-eye emoji.

Allred's Twitter account is currently set to private.

After Allred made his initial controversial comment about wishing someone would shoot Trump, he deleted his tweet but defended his right to free speech.

In response to the backlash, Allred wrote, “[S]aying you wish donald trump was dead is different than making a direct threat against him. just saying.”
