Billionaire Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has criticized an awake college professor who tweeted that she hoped Queen Elizabeth II’s pain would be unbearable hours before she died at age 96.
Uju Anya is an ‘anti-racist’ teacher and associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — and sparked outrage after her vile tweet about the ailing monarch, calling her the head of a “stealing, raping, genocidal empire.”
Her Majesty passed away today at the age of 96. She died surrounded by members of the royal family in Balmoral Castle, Scotland.
In a disgusting tweet, modern language teacher Anya wrote: “I heard the supreme ruler of a thieving raping genocidal empire finally dies. May her pain be unbearable.
“If anyone expects me to express anything but contempt for the monarch who oversaw a government that supported the genocide that massacred and expelled half of my family and whose current people are still trying to overcome the consequences, you may star wish.
“That wretched woman and her bloodthirsty throne have f***** generations of my ancestors on both sides of the family, and she oversaw a government that sponsored the genocide that my parents and siblings survived. May she die in agony.’
An “expert” on critical race theory, Anya says she has expertise in “diversity, equity and inclusion in educational practices and curriculum design.”
Uju Anya is a lecturer and associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She tweeted the disgusting words after the news that the Queen was in ill health
Hundreds of people criticized the blunt professor for her comments about the queen’s last hours
Her vile words were criticized online by thousands, including billionaire Bezos.
Jeff Bezos said, ‘This is someone who is supposedly working to make the world a better place? I do not think so. Wow.’
Journalist Piers Morgan also added, “You disgusting disgusting idiot.”
One horrified user said, ‘Don’t expect that from you, just expect decency, respect for such a loss. If you can’t give that right now, you’re a disgrace to a human being.’
Another added: ‘You’re just so rude and ill-mannered. You speak of someone who has just passed with such a mean and contemptuous remark.
‘You really are not a woman with so much hatred in your heart and we certainly don’t need that with women who hold high positions in our society. Horrible!!’
A third, disgusted by the words, said: “There is always someone seeking attention in the midst of tragedy, which you might understand if the target was a hated public figure, but these comments are disgusting, and also of a verified blue tick.” . . You should be ashamed.’
Today at 1:30 p.m. EST, the Queen’s death was confirmed. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: ‘The Queen passed away peacefully this afternoon in Balmoral.

Her Majesty, Queen of the United Kingdom, died on September 8, 2022
The King and The Queen Consort remain in Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow.
With the death of the Queen, Britain and her Commonwealth realms will enter a ten-day period of mourning as millions of her subjects in the UK and abroad come to terms with her passing.
And when her son, King Charles, takes the throne, there will also be a celebration of her historic 70th reign, which saw her reach her platinum jubilee this year – a milestone likely never to be reached by a British monarch again.
Charles, who became king after the death of his mother, said: ‘We mourn the passing of a beloved Sovereign and a much-beloved mother.
“I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the rich and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”
