Professor calls Israelis “pigs,” “savages,” “excrement” and says “May they all rot in hell” — then does a strange about-face in an apology the next day

A professor apologized Wednesday for an Instagram Story post from the previous day in which he called Israelis “pigs,” “savages,” “very, very bad people” and even “incurable excrement.”

Mika Tosca – Associate Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and self-proclaimed “radically optimistic transsexual climate scientist” – expressed the following parting wish to Israelis in his post on Tuesday: “May they all rot in hell.”

The following social media post contains an apparent screenshot of Tosca’s now-deleted words, as well as a photo of the professor:

What happened next?

Tosca seemed to have a 180 degree change of heart the next day and issued the following apology on Wednesday afternoon:

“Yesterday I wrote some things on my Instagram story that I strongly disagree with and don’t stand behind,” Tosca said started. “I am deeply sorry that I wrote what I wrote and that I hurt many people with my words, and I am especially sorry for the Israeli people, whom I largely blamed for the war have. You don’t deserve this – and you didn’t deserve it either. It was wrong to post what I posted; I know my words perpetuated harmful stereotypes.”

Not everyone buys Tosca’s Mea culpaHowever:

  • “If you don’t stand behind it, why did you post it?” one commenter wondered. “You’re sorry you got caught, not that you did it.”
  • “Which is your true heart – today or yesterday?” Another user asked. “I guess yesterday, and today you’re trying to clean up your disgusting mess.”
  • “Bad Nazi,” another commenter wrote.

What did the school have to say?

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago issued the following statement to Blaze News on Wednesday regarding X contribution with what appears to be Tosca’s photo and original words: “A member of our community expressed hateful views that SAIC rejects. These views do not reflect the school or the values ​​we share as a community.”
