A Harvard graduate blamed supporters of President Trump after she was fired from her job for posting a video in which she threatened to harm people who used the phrase “All lives matter.”
Claira Janover, a recent Harvard graduate who said she accepted a position with U.K.-based accounting firm Deloitte, said in videos posted Wednesday that the company had terminated her employment. Her dismissal came days after she posted a separate video on TikTok that went viral, in which she threatened anyone with “the nerve” to say “All lives matter.”
“I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters, too,’” she said.
In a new video, Janover said, “Standing up for Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people. The job that I’d worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me has called me and fired me because of everything.”
She deleted the original video and argued that her statement was an analogy and not a threat.
“Trump supporters took my job away from me,” she said in another video posted Wednesday. “I have gotten death threats, rape threats, violent threats. It was OK, but now, my future’s entirely compromised because Trump supporters have decided to come for my life.”
Janover, who received a degree in government and psychology, also vowed not to let the “racist Trump supporters” bring her down, according to the New York Post.
“I’m too strong for you. I’m too strong for any of you ‘All Lives Matter,’ racist Trump supporters,” she said. “It sucks. But it doesn’t suck as much as systemic racism. And I’m not going to stop using my platform to advocate for it.”
