Harvard President Gay apologizes for failing to convey ‘my truth’ during congressional hearing
Harvard University President Claudine Gay has issued an apology for her Tuesday congressional testimony in which she insisted that the acceptability of “calling for the genocide of Jews” on Harvard’s campus “depends on context” of the call for genocide.
“I am sorry. Words matter,” Gay told the Harvard Crimson on Thursday.
“I got caught up in what had become at that point, an extended, combative exchange about policies and procedures,” Gay told The Crimson. “What I should have had the presence of mind to do in that moment was return to my guiding truth, which is that calls for violence against our Jewish community — threats to our Jewish students — have no place at Harvard, and will never go unchallenged.”
“Substantively, I failed to convey what is my truth.”
During the hearing Rep. Elise Stefanik (R- NY) asked Gay: “At Harvard, does calling for the genocide of Jews violate Harvard’s rules of bullying and harassment?”
“It can be, depending on the context,” Gay answered.
Stefanik offered Gay multiple chances to re-answer the question, pressing her for a ‘yes or no.’
