“Trump is a f*cking joke. This is all a sham. I wish someone would just shoot him outright,” the now deleted tweet read.
This comes after a November 2016 incident where Allred was admitted to Bellevue Psychiatric Hospital to undergo a psychiatric evaluation while employed at Rutgers University. Allred was admitted after he made threats on Twitter ‘to kill white people,’ burn the flag and abuse gun laws.
Despite this, Allred was hired as a professor of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at New Jersey’s Montclair State University. Allred gained further notoriety for his class “Politicizing Beyonce.”
Following his tweets, Allred was fired from his position at Montclair State.
However, a Montclair State University spokesperson told Patch that Allred was never officially employed at:
“Kevin Allred has never been an employee of Montclair State University, is not one at this time, and the university has not made any formal offer of employment to him.”
