A university professor claims to have received death threats after branding Donald Trump supporters “maggots” live on air.
Michael Eric Dyson has been forced to apologize after his remark caused anger to flare as he also railed against “mediocre, mealy-mouthed, snowflake White men” on MSNBC.
The 62-year-old academic took the shocking swipe MAGA fans when appeared on the channel on Wednesday – but claims it was actually a slip of the tongue.
“Speaking about the maggots – I’m sorry, the MAGA,” the Vanderbilt professor said in response to a question about Republican opposition to critical race theory.
He went on to add: “We have borne the brunt of being disloyal to this nation.
“And we have stood by to see mediocre mealy-mouthed snowflake White men who are incapable of taking critique, who are willing to dole out infamous repudiations of the humanity of the other, and yet they call us snowflakes and they are the biggest flakes of snow to hit the Earth.”
