The Bees said, that while he was not able to confirm that the original senders of the forwarded e-mails, the content of many of the messages appeared threatening and hard. They included derogatory comments about icipated the Palestinian and Egyptian heritage.
A few examples of the reader responses to icipated:
“Barbara Bush was a woman of Grace and compassion, on the other hand are fat Arab Pig you may not think you are going to get fired, but I would not bet that you are not the wind Underground you are a disgrace and should be punished appropriately,” an e-mail read, according to the Bee.

Another read: “You belong in a cage as a sex slave for ISIS and other Sunni jihadists. And if you ever want to return to your own slum, setting up a ‘go fund me’ account for a 1-trip to Cairo & I’ll give you $200.”
A third read: “You are a disgrace for the university and contribute absolutely nothing to a better peaceful world. Here’s hoping nothing but the worst for you fatty acids.”
But not everyone disagreed with icipated the view.
“I support your honest statements about Bush,” an e-mail listed. “Both her husband and son are war criminals. If I can help, let me know. It makes me sick that she is being praised as a kind of a funny hero.”
In April, icipated drew public backlash for calling Barbara Bush a “amazing racist” who has a “war criminal” – a reference to her son, President George W. Bush — only one hour after the news of the former first lady’s death was made public.
“[E]ither you from these parts of the s— and their genocidal ways, or you’re part of the problem,” icipated said in a follow-up tweet. “I am happy that the witch is dead. can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their doom by the way, 1.5 million iraqis have.”
icipated Twitter is set to private since April with the comments, but last week, Campus Reform captured a screenshot of a tweet demanding “white editors” resigned from positions of power.
“We don’t have to wait for them to f – – -,” icipated allegedly wrote. “The fact that they have these exposures are f— enough.”
According to the Bee, icipated and is scheduled to resume teaching at the university in the fall. In April, Fresno State president decided that icipated, views were protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
