UPDATE: It turns out OSU faculty member did write that infamous Facebook post asking for sympathy for the ISIS supporter who injured 10 people (1 critically) when he drove his car into a group of students and then got out and started stabbing anyone nearby.
A petition to have OSU Assistant Director of Residence Life Stephanie Clemons fired is gaining steam, and now has over 1,500 signatures.
In this alleged Facebook post that has since gone viral, Ohio State University Assistant Director of Residence Life Stephanie Clemons Thompson is urging her friends and followers to show the terrorist Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who attempted to kill as many OSU students as possible in yesterday’s attack, ‘compassion.’
She also urges others to “think of the pain he must have been in,” as well as hashtags that coincide with the Black Lives Matter movement like #SayHisName.
There is no indication she made a post urging others to think of the actual pain the 10 injured students (one critically) are currently going through – nor the shaken sense of safety of her students.
The post has since been taken down or made private. Please note: As of publication of this article, we could not independently verify with 100% certainty the authenticity of this post. However, other posts still available to the public might indicate a pattern.
