Some U of I Students Take to Twitter to Complain About Chancellor Wise


Some University of Illinois students have become Internet celebrities… and not in a good way… for a series of increasingly vicious attacks on the university’s chancellor, after she decided not to close the campus Monday despite the bitter cold.

 

Students who were angry about having to go to class in the frigid temperatures began posting obscene, racist and sexist tweets against the chancellor.

 

Before long, other websites were reposting and drawing attention to them. Many of the worst tweets were then deleted… but not before screengrabs guaranteed them some national notoriety.
