Auburn lecturer’s anti-cop tweets ‘inexcusable’ as university ‘continues to assess’ his future

Auburn University is assessing the future of a lecturer who tweeted anti-police profanity earlier this week as the school said the behavior is “inexcusable and completely antithetical to the Auburn creed.”

Jesse Goldberg, who was hired as a part-time lecturer of American literature and composition at Auburn, has since locked his tweets from being publicly seen, but WRBL reported that the incoming lecturer espoused anti-police views on his social media pages.

“F*ck every single cop. Every single one,” read one of Goldberg’s tweets, according to the station. “The only ethical choice for any cop to make at this point is to refuse to do their job and quit. The police do not protect people. They protect capital. They are instruments of violence on behalf of capital.”

Auburn condemned Goldberg’s social media activity in a statement Friday to AL.com.

“As stated earlier this week, Mr. Goldberg’s comments on social media are inexcusable and completely antithetical to the Auburn Creed.
