Uju Anya, an associate professor of second language acquisition at Carnegie Mellon University, posted a tweet on Thursday stating,
“I heard the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying, May her pain be excruciating.”
Jeff Bezos, who came across Uju Anya’s tweet, quoted and wrote,
“This is someone supposedly working to make the world better?”
“I don’t think so,” he added. “Wow.”
To which the Professor responded,
“May everyone you and your merciless greed have harmed in this world remember you as fondly as I remember my colonizers.”
This tweet was posted after the Professor learnt the news that the 96-year-old monarch was sick in her Scotland residence, and Buckingham Palace officially confirmed less than an hour before Queen Elizabeth’s passing at age 96 that this war of tweets took place while the 96-year-old Queen was sick at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
One Twitter user commented, “Ewww you stink,”
For which the Professor retaliated, “You mean like your p-ssy?”
Later, Twitter took down the post of Uju Anya for breaking the rules under “wishing or hoping that someone experiences physical harm.”
A Twitter user, when asked the Professor if she wished for the Queen to die, wrote,
“I’m not wishing her dead. She’s dying already. I’m wishing her an agonizingly painful death like the one she caused for millions of people.”
And she added that
“If anyone expects me to express anything but disdain for the monarch who supervised a government that sponsored the genocide that massacred and displaced half my family and the consequences of which those alive today are still trying to overcome, you can keep wishing upon a star.”

Though Jeff Bezos did not respond to Uju Anya’s reply, he instead posted a tweet.
“I can think of no one who better personified duty. My deepest condolences to all the Brits mourning her passing today.”
Jeff Bezos and his family visited Buckingham Palace and admired the collection of jewels and artwork. He did not meet any Royal Family members, instead had an eat-out with Tom Cruise at a restaurant in the tony Mayfair neighbourhood.
