[2/16/17] Michigan State chemistry professor Dr. Rob DeLuca is in trouble after posting Donald Trump-themed satirical valentines to a private Facebook group for students at the school.
The memes said things like “I wouldn’t deport you,” “I’m going to build a wall around your heart so that no one else can get in,” and “Illegal immigrants are stealing our jobs, but you’re stealing my heart.”
The e-cards were obviously meant to be satirical—and even a dig at the current President—but members of MSU’s “Latinx” community decided that poking fun at Donald Trump’s immigration policies, which target illegal immigrants from Mexico among others, was triggering.
They reported DeLuca to his faculty supervisor. DeLuca removed the offending images and made a heart-felt apology, explaining that he, most definitely, is not a Trump supporter.
