The Chronicle of Higher Education reports the University of Delaware has reached a decision about the status of an adjunct who criticized Otto Warmbier.

Delaware had previously denounced the remarks by Katherine A. Dettwyler, an adjunct lecturer in anthropology. In the comments section of a National Review article and on her Facebook page, Ms. Dettwyler wrote in posts that have since been removed that Mr. Warmbier is “typical of the mind-set of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueless males who come into my classes.”

“Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warmbier got exactly what he deserved?” she asked. …

In its latest statement, the university indicated Ms. Dettwyler had taught at the institution in the spring, but she would not be hired in the future.
