Twitter has suspended Georgetown University associate professor C. Christine Fair after she posted a violent diatribe targeting white GOP senators at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's hearing last Thursday.
The university also spoke out and issued a statement on her conduct.
What's the latest?
If you attempt to visit Fair's Twitter page at the time of this writing, no tweets are visible and you are redirected to an "account suspended" landing page.
Fair's Twitter page — prior to the suspension — described her as a “[s]cholar of South Asian pol-mil affairs, inter-sectional feminist, pitbull apostle, scotch devotee, nontheist, [and] resister.”
Twitter presumably suspended Fair's account after outcry over her inflammatory tweets about GOP senators deserving "miserable deaths" for their roles in the Kavanaugh hearing.
Georgetown University issued a statement on Fair's tweets on Monday.
A spokesperson for the university said, "The views of faculty members expressed in their private capacities are their own and not the views of the University."
"Our policy does not prohibit speech based on the person presenting ideas or the content of those ideas, even when those ideas may be difficult, controversial or objectionable," the statement continued. "While faculty members may exercise freedom of speech, we expect that their classrooms and interaction with students be free of bias and geared toward thoughtful, respectful dialogue."
What did she say, anyway?
On Saturday, Fair wrote, "Look at thus [sic] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement. All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps."
She concluded the graphic tweet with “Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”

According to a Sunday post by Campus Reform, Fair responded to a female reporter's request for comment in a lengthy post on her blog, “Tenacious Hellp***y.”
In her response, Fair wrote, “There is a war going on against women and you, and your despicable herd of so-called journalists seeking to protect male privilege and shame women for our victimization or our rage are complicit in this war.”
Fair explained that she was not calling for violence against any senators and was “merely speaking to what my spirituality says these vile souls deserve.”
