Yale dean placed on leave after calling people ‘white trash’ on Yelp – ABC News
A Yale University dean has been placed on leave after writing controversial remarks on her Yelp reviews of local businesses, including calling people who dined at one restaurant “white trash.”
Screenshots obtained by Yale Daily News on Saturday afternoon reveal several controversial reviews posted using the Yelp account of June Chu, dean of Pierson College.
In an email to the Pierson community obtained by ABC News, Head of College Stephen Davis said Chu has been placed on leave and will not be participating in commencement activities or working with students through the end of the academic year.
In one review for a Japanese Restaurant written seven months ago, Chu wrote that going to the restaurant is the “perfect night out for you” if you are “white trash.”
“This establishment is definitely not authentic by any stretch of any imagination and perfect for those low class folks who believe this is a real night out,” she wrote.
Chu often stated plainly in her reviews that she was “Asian.”
