People across the United States are outraged at a public university adjunct professor for posting on Facebook that Otto Warmbier “got exactly what he deserved.”
Katherine Dettwyler, an anthropology teacher at the University of Delaware, said that Warmbier had the “typical mindset of a lot of young, rich, clueless males who come into my classes.”
“These are the same kids who cry about their grades because they didn’t think they’d really have to read and study the material to get a good grade,” Dettwyler wrote on her Facebook account Tuesday, a day after Warmbier died.
“Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warmbier got exactly what he deserved?”
Warmbier, 22, was detained by North Korea in January 2016 after he stole a government propaganda poster. The communist regime sentenced the University of Virginia student to 15 years of hard labor.
Last week, Pyongyang released Warmbier back to the U.S. in a condition that doctors described as “unresponsive wakefulness.” One week later, Warmbier died.
The Daily Caller reports:
Dettwyler blamed Warmbier’s parents for allowing their son to grow up “thinking he could get away with whatever he wanted.”
She also wrote that “young, white, rich, clueless white males routinely get away with raping women” in the United States.
