Ken Storey tweeted that Texans deserved Hurricane Harvey and he was fired right after that.
He tweeted Sunday that the Texans deserved Hurricane Harvey because of their support for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
The University of Tampa stated:
“On Sunday, Aug. 27, visiting assistant professor of sociology Kenneth Storey made comments on a private Twitter account that do not reflect UT’s community views or values. We condemn the comments and the sentiment behind them, and understand the pain this irresponsible act has caused.”
“Storey has been relieved of his duties at UT, and his classes will be covered by other sociology faculty. As Floridians, we are well of the destruction and suffering associated with tropical weather. Our thoughts and prayers are with all impacted by Hurricane Harvey.”
Former University of Tampa professor Kenneth Storey tweeted:
“I don’t believe in instant Karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas,” according to Campus Reform. “Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesn’t care about them.”
After that Storey reportedly wrote:
“Well, the good people there need to do more to stop the evil their state pushes. I’m only blaming those who support the GOP there.”
