A suburban Washington, D.C., gym canceled the membership of the “alt-right” leader Richard Spencer last week after he was recognized by a Georgetown University professor who confronted him and called a “cowardly Nazi” in public.
Now the professor is being targeted by anti-Semitic trolls online.
“That’s Professor ‘Jew Pig Whore,’” one Twitter user wrote.
“Get in the oven,” wrote another, named @Himstilafashist.
The professor, C. Christine Fair, fired back in a Twitter message boasting that she won the confrontation.
“Dear pathetic Nazis trolling me: your ‘uber-mensch’ @RichardBSpencer was owned by this ‘fat, ugly, pig, Jewess whore.’ Let that sink in.”
The trolling comes after Fair, an associate professor at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, confronted Spencer at a gym in Alexandria, Virginia.
“Not only are you a Nazi — you are a cowardly Nazi,’ ” Fair told The Washington Post she said to Spencer. “I just want to say to you, I’m sick of your crap… I find your presence in this gym to be unacceptable, your presence in this town to be unacceptable.”
The confrontation took place last week at Old Town Sport&Health, where both Spencer and White were working out.
