Deloitte fires Harvard grad over viral BLM video, Internet says she'd get better offers from Google and Apple
A Harvard graduate, who said in a TikTok video that she would "stab" anyone who told her "All Lives Matter," revealed in new recordings that she has lost her job at Deloitte over the perceived threats and ensuing fury. Claira Janover had graduated from Harvard in May and was working as an "incoming government and public business service analyst” at Deloitte, a UK-based accounting firm.
In the since-deleted TikTok video, Janover railed against people with “the nerve, the sheer entitled caucasity to say ‘All Lives Matter.’” She added, “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.'”
In her new video, Janover says, "Standing up for Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people," adding, "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.” During the video, Janover gestured to what appears to be a page from the company’s website, and noted that she was axed “even though they claim to stand against systematic bias, racism, and unequal treatment.”
Janover targeted the blame at US President Donald Trump's supporters, saying in another video, “Trump supporters took my job away from me,” she said in another new 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.”
“I’m too strong for you. I’m too strong for any of you ‘All Lives Matter,’ racist Trump supporters,” she continued. “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.”
Many conservatives took to social media to applaud Delloite for the move. One user tweeted, "Woman who is threatened to stab people on social media just doesn’t understand why she lost a job “she worked really hard for.” I’d assume a Harvard grad would understand accountability, even when it seems to have been absent among much of gen z. Good for Deloitte!" Another shared, "Good for Deloitte. But I’m sure she’s already got better offers from Google, Apple, etc etc."
One user wrote, "Can’t object to the firing. Deloitte has to take public threats by employees seriously. The left made that rule," while another shared, "Apparently she had a job at #Deloitte and they fired her. Of course, the libs are upset by this though. Morons. Kudos to #Deloitte for doing the right thing. Preaching about killing people should never be rewarded."
However, many called out Delloite for the move and lamented Janover's doxxing. One user wrote, "So much for standing up for Black Lives Matter. When someone speaks out, you just drop them?? You’ve made it clear that you are not here for the movement," while another shared, "I hate this recent trend of ppl getting doxxed for political speech & then fired. Endless cycle of toxicity. Sucks that internet armies exist to find people like this & ruin their life."
One user wrote, "The company @Deloitte recently released a statement saying they stand against 'systemic bias, racism, and unequal treatment' but when one of their employees stands up and speaks out about #BlackLivesMatter, they get fired? Something's not right here." Another opined, "Literally claira was making a f**king metaphor. @Deloitte yall aint sh*t. Racism is an illness. Yall are sick."
