Yale dean apologizes for Yelp reviews that left students ‘floored
A dean at Yale University is taking heat for less-than-diplomatic Yelp reviews on anything from restaurants to gyms. Also on Saturday, the News published almost a dozen screenshots of additional derogatory reviews from Chu's account.
Davis had previously defended Chu, saying he had not asked for her resignation, but said Thursday that Chu assured him and other college administrators that she only posted two "troubling" reviews.
For instance, after visiting Koto Japanese restaurant in Groton, Chu criticized the establishment and called it a great night for "white trash" and "low class folks".
"To put it quite simply: If you are white trash, this is the ideal night out for you", Chu wrote in a review of Koto, a Japanese restaurant. Chu sent an apology email to the Pierson community that day, stating, "My remarks were wrong".
In a review of a New Haven cinema, Chu wrote "barely educated morons trying to manage snack orders for the obese and also try to add $7 plus $7". "Dean Chu is trained in human development and psychology so should clearly understand the gravity of her actions, yet the fact that she would put such things on the Internet shows that she really should not be in a position of advising students". Davis wrote that Chu was placed to leave and would not be participating in commencement ceremonies.
In one review, Chu made derogatory remarks about customers at a local Japanese steakhouse, notes The Associated Press: "If you are white trash, this is the flawless night out for you!" She also pointed out the employees appear to be Chinese, not Japanese.
"The front desk person this am, Bethany, was the rudest person and just full of attitude - seriously I don't care if you would "lose your job" (I am sure McDonalds would hire you)".
In another review posted three months ago for a Mochi eatery, Chu made additional controversial statements while complaining about the quality and price of the dessert.
"I guess if you were a white person who has no clue what mocha is, this would be fine for you". "I have learned a lot this semester about the power of words and about the accountability that we owe one another", she wrote in an email last week.
Ironic that she finally recognized a basic tenet of human interaction that had eluded her up to this point, despite having obviously preached its value to countless college students during her career.
Chu holds a counseling role to the hundreds of students in her residential college, and her biography says she seeks "to help students not only succeed academically but to support their holistic academic experience and multifaceted identities".
Chu really didn't like New Haven much.
"I personally would have a very hard time maintaining the respect for her that I think the position merits if she were to continue as Pierson's dean", she told the newspaper.
Snapchat Reaches 166 Million Daily Users
But leading up to the earnings report, all eyes were on the one deadly sin for an Internet company: slowing user growth. Snap announced at the time of its IPO in March that it had 161 million daily active users on average in December.
