A petition calling for the termination of Matt Lasner’s employment from his current employer, Hunter College in New York, has garnered thousands of signatures online.
Lasner and his husband, Dan Goldstein, spotted the president-elect’s daughter at the JFK airport in New York and decided they could not abide letting her go without bothering her.
“Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them,” Lasner wrote on Twitter, according to the U.K.Daily Mail.
Any time you’re declaring that you or someone close to you are going to go “harass” something or someone, you’re not setting yourself up as the “good guy.”
The pair were removed from the JetBlue flight, unsurprisingly, and Lasner had the gall to tweet, “My husband expressed his displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off,” according to the Daily Mail.
The petition on Change.org to terminate Lasner’s employment has gone mega-viral. As of Friday afternoon, it had already been signed by over 55,000 people.
“Matt Lasner’s conduct is a direct representation of Hunter College,” the petition began. “We believe his immature and cruel harassment of Ivanka Trump and her family at JFK airport should be met with disciplinary action.”
“The fact that someone who would be involved in such conduct is teaching students is very troubling,” the petition continued.
“We are petitioning that Hunter College take ACTION. Someone like Mr. Lasner, who would harass a mother and her child simply trying to go about their day, does not deserve the honor of teaching. The fact that he tried to cover up and change the story around to avoid the consequences of his actions is also a testament to his character. He is NOT a good example for our youth.”
For what it’s worth, I added my name to the petition. I encourage you to do so as well.
