A lecturer at the University of Bern in Switzerland had glorified the Hamas attack on Israel in a tweet on X and commented on a video of the attack with “Shabbat Shalom”.

He was fired. Delicate fact: he is married to the head of the university (!), so his wife was immediately released from her duties, too (estimated yearly salary for both $450,000).

That was hell of an expensive X post.

Obviously, even the best education does not help to not drop your pants in front of the world public at the wrong moment.
