Thousands want professor fired after Ivanka Trump is heckled on plane
Several thousand people are calling for a Hunter College professor to be fired after his husband heckled Ivanka Trump.
Urban studies and planning professor Matt Lasner and his husband, Dan Goldstein, were kicked off of a JetBlue flight when Goldstein went on a rant against Trump during the flight, while Ivanka and her family were waiting for takeoff.
Lasner himself tweeted about the incident that got them both kicked out, writing, “Ivanka just before @JetBlue kicked us off our flight when a flt attendant overheard my husband expressing displeasure about flying w/ Trumps.”
In the petition calling for Lasner’s termination, those calling for his ouster claim, “Matt Lasner’s conduct is a direct representation of Hunter College,” citing that as a reason for him to be fired.
