Earlier this week Ivanka Trump was harassed on a JetBlue Flight by an angry gay couple. One of them screamed at her in front of her scared children about how Trump was going to ruin the country and that she should be flying coach. The man was escorted off the flight.
His husband Matt Lasner is just as guilty, he tweeted at the airport of how he was proud of his husband for harassing Ivanka. “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil.” tweeted Lasner. Matt Lasner is, surprise, surprise, a professor at Hunter College.
Since then a man named Brenden Bradley started a petition of change.org for Hunter College to fire Lasner.
“Matt Lasner’s conduct is a direct representation of Hunter College. We believe his immature and cruel harassment of Ivanka Trump and her family at JFK airport should be met with disciplinary action. The fact that someone who would be involved in such conduct is teaching students is very troubling,” wrote Bradley in his petition.
“We are petitioning that Hunter College take ACTION. Someone like Mr. Lasner, who would harass a mother and her child simply trying to go about their day, does not deserve the honor of teaching. The fact that he tried to cover up and change the story around to avoid the consequences of his actions is also a testament to his character. He is NOT a good example for our youth,” he wrote. The petition now has over 50,000 signatures.
