A University of Delaware professor who caused outrage by criticizing the college student who died after being held prisoner in North Korea lost her adjunct position on Sunday.
“Katherine Dettwyler, who last taught in the spring as an adjunct faculty member, will not be rehired to teach at the University in the future,” read a statement from the school.
Dettwyler reportedly wrote on her personal Facebook page that former detainee Otto Warmbier had a “typical of a mindset of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueless males who come into my classes.”
She added that the Warmbier “got exactly what he deserved.”
Warmbier died Monday after being freed from a North Korea prison for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from his hotel in early 2016.
