Turkey's comeuppance on Jayhawks
The Kansas City Star
The faculty and staff at the University of Kansas need to be locked in an auditorium and given “thou shall never” social media lessons.
Jim Lichtenberg, associate dean for graduate programs at the School of Education, provided the object lesson with an email this week to an upset dog rescuer in Indiana over a recent animal abuse incident at a KU fraternity house. The email was in response to the woman’s reaction to an online news story about a turkey being chased, choked and its wing and leg broken, The Kansas City Star reports.
Lichtenberg thought his response was to two colleagues on campus, but it also went to the Indiana woman, Jennah Dibiase of Terre Haute, making fun of the animal abuse incidence and using a slag term describing masturbation. Really dumb!
Lichtenberg told The Star he realized seconds after he hit “send” that he had inadvertently sent the email to Dibiase. Really dumb!
A university spokeswoman told The Star, “The disrespectful levity used in this email does not reflect the opinions or actions of the university on this issue.”
The turkey sort of got his comeuppance on the Jayhawks.
