Do you remember the name Shellyne Rodriguez?
She is the controversial former Hunter College professor who wielded a machete against a reporter following up a story about an incident that took place at the school.
Well, she has just been fired again, hopefully, never to see the inside of a classroom again.
Making the News
Rodriquez became a bit of an internet sensation after she trashed a student pro-life display at Hunter College.
The video of the incident blew up all over social media, with conservatives demanding an investigation and her firing.
When a reporter tracked her down to ask her about the incident, she came out of her apartment with a machete to threaten the man.
The reporter and his cameraman left the building, only to be chased down on the street by Rodriguez...
Shellyne Rodriguez claims she was dumped as an instructor @cooperunion for a post about "Zionists." Curious how Rodriguez was hired in the 1st place after being fired from @Hunter_College & @SVA_News after threatening, then chasing a reporter with a machete.… pic.twitter.com/0xhvFNuimb

She was eventually fired by Hunter College, but then she got a job at the School of Visual Arts (CUNY), where she was also fired.
Rodriguez was charged for the machete incident, working out a plea deal with the Bronx’s DA office.
She then landed another job at the Cooper Union, a private art and science college in Lower Manhattan.
Rodriguez announced on social media that she had been fired from that job.
She posted, “Cooper Union has fired me because of a social media post I made about ‘Zionists.’
“This is fascism. Y’all are learning about it in real time.”
This woman has no right to be in a classroom pumping that poison into the brains of kids.
Hopefully, everyone has learned a lesson from this and she will never be hired to teach inside a classroom again.
