On May 22, 2023, Shellyne Rodriguez, an adjunct professor at a Manhattan college attacked a group of pro-life students.
“You’re not educating s–t. This is f–king propaganda,” the art professor told the students tabling on May 2. “What are you going to do like anti-trans next?”
A male student behind the table calmly told her, “I mean no, we’re talking about abortion” and said he was sorry about “triggering” her students.
Rodriguez said that the group was promoting “violence.”
Then in a swearing tantrum, she threw the group’s material off the table and onto the floor.
When the incident first took place, Hunter college said that they were investigating.
A spokesperson for the college told the outlet that Hunter was “taking this matter very seriously.”
“The provost has opened an investigation into the professor’s actions,” the rep added.

The day after the incident went viral, the New York Post sent a reporter to get a comment from Rodriguez.
When the post knocked on the door, the woke professor opened it holding a machete, and then held it to the reporter’s neck yelling, “Get the f–k away from my door, or I’m gonna chop you up with this machete!”
“Get the f–k away from my door! Get the f–k away from my door!” she raged.
The NY Post reporter immediately left, only to be chased by Rodriguez outside, still holding the machete.
“If I see you on this block one more f–king time, you’re gonna …,” Rodriguez yelled, chasing the reporter down the street. “Get the f–k off the block! Get the f–k out of here, yo!”
