Pierson College Dean June Chu — whose insensitive Yelp posts drew criticism earlier this week — has been placed on leave and will not participate in Commencement activities, according to a Thursday morning email from Pierson Head Stephen Davis.

Last Saturday, Chu wrote to the Pierson community apologizing for using insensitive language in Yelp reviews of local businesses — referring to customers as “white trash” and “low class folks” in one, and praising a New Haven movie theater for its lack of “sketchy crowds” in another. Also on Saturday, the News published nearly a dozen screenshots of additional derogatory reviews from Chu’s account.

Davis, who defended Chu on Saturday, explained this morning that Chu had assured him and other Yale administrators that she had only posted two “troubling” reviews. After discovering “multiple reprehensible” posts, he said he could no longer envision a path forward with Chu as dean, having lost trust in her ability to oversee the residential college and lead students.





Jesus. Please respect your students and other human beings!

That first review was fine and felt punishment was overblown. And then I read the second one.
What did he mean by this?

I feel very strongly about authentic mochi. It's my one issue when voting.

It never ceases to amuse me that individuals in positions of authority, especially academia as prestigious as Yale wants to broadcast their ill-founded views to the world.

Yeah I read about this earlier this week. Apparently the only reason why she was caught was she sent an email to her students saying she had reached Yelp Elite status (which is a thing), and her students started reading through the reviews.

When you think you're some kind of food connoisseur but in reality you're just a piece of shit racist and classist.

Also I'll never stop being amazed by this level of stupidity. Why put your real name and photo ? If you're hellbent on posting shitty reviews on yelp why not do it anonymously ?

Elite is actually scrub tier—just above regular users. From there, you can get Gold (stay Elite for 5 years), and then Black (stay Gold for some number of years), and then they will probably add some more levels later, when too many users get to Black.

Wow, she is just unironically slandering people as trash over CHINESE FOOD, while she acts like a 12 year old YouTube commenter...

That's scary how arrogant people can be. Didn't like the food or the service, fine. But I agree with the university's decision here, that is flat out unacceptable.

No but I mean just being a person of colour doesn't mean you get to demean those en masse or those you consider are in positions of power and so free to insult. People like to shift the goal posts of what racism or prejudice entails, but broadly referring to clientele of a restaurant as something only white trash would visit, isn't something a Dean at an ivy league school should write or a shitty flavor of something only dumb white people would like.

I mean there was literally no reason for her to write that.

There's a trend among Yelp reviewers to out-authenticity everyone else and this is just a case of it going too far relative to her profession. I expect this kind of language from a 20-something "foodie", not a college dean.

This meta posting/disengenuous stuff has to really stop, especially if you think I am one of 'them'.

My reply was more to the point of 'is it really that serious'. This kind of shit does none of us any favours.

"Is it serious" was referring to this woman taking her "duties" as a helper too seriously to the point she was openly racist, not whether the racism itself was serious

Go be indignant over your own misunderstanding somewhere else
