Call for firing of Brooklyn professor whose husband harassed Ivanka Trump on flight

Dec 28, 2016 by

A petition has been started asking Hunter College to fire Matthew Lasner, an associate professor of urban studies

Sign the Petition:

A petition is calling for the New York university that employs the urban studies professor whose husband accosted Ivanka Trump on a plane last week to fire the man from his job.

Over 5,000 people have signed a petition asking Hunter College to remove Matthew Lasner from his position in the administration for his ‘immature and cruel harassment of Ivanka Trump and her family at JFK airport.’

The petition was created by the group Right Wing Millennials.

‘Someone like Mr Lasner, who would harass a mother and her child simply trying to go about their day, does not deserve the honor of teaching,’ reads the petition.

‘The fact that he tried to cover up and change the story around to avoid the consequences of his actions is also a testament to his character. He is NOT a good example for our youth.’

According to his biography on the Hunter College website, Lasner ‘studies the history and theory of the U.S. built environment, with particular focus on housing, and the relationship between housing patterns and urban and suburban form.’

He earned a PhD in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, a MS in urban and regional planning studies from the London School of Economics and his BA in urban studies at Columbia.
