A Harvard University graduate, who posted a Tik Tok video and warned to “stab” anyone who supported the “all lives matter campaign,” now claims that she has been receiving death threats since the video hit social media.
Claira Janover, a Connecticut resident, graduated from Harvard in May. In the viral video, she threatens all those with “the nerve, the sheer entitled caucasity to say ‘All Lives Matter.’”
“I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, My cut matters too,” she is heard saying.
Janover later took off the video from the platform. Some other users shared the video on Twitter which gained at least 2 million views.
She posted an update video reporting that she has been receiving “insane” reactions and numerous death threats.
“Story time for why the Department of Homeland might be monitoring my name right now,” she said in the update video.
She claimed the clip was “clearly” an “analogous joke,” indicating that a message stating “For legal reasons, this is a joke,” was posted along with the video.
“And people are like reporting me for domestic terrorism, tagging the FBI, Harvard, Cambridge police,” she said.
“Apparently I’m threatening the lives of people — unlike cops, obviously,” she said.
Posting a series of supportive messages she said, “Anyway, so If I get an email from the Department of Homeland Security or I get kicked out of Harvard or I get arrested or whatever — or I get murdered, according to the many death threats that I’m receiving right now — know that I appreciate you guys standing up for me.”
She said that she has now lost her job because of the video.
“Standing up for Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people,” Janover said in a new video posted Wednesday (July 1) afternoon. “The job that I’d worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me has called me and fired me because of everything.”
Gesturing to a page from the company’s website, Janover said she was axed “even though they claim to stand against systematic bias, racism, and unequal treatment.”
“Trump supporters took my job away from me,” she said in another new video. “I have gotten death threats, rape threats, violent threats. It was OK, but now my future’s entirely compromised because Trump supporters have decided to come for my life.”
“I’m too strong for you. I’m too strong for any of you ‘All Lives Matter,’ racist Trump supporters,” she said in the video. “It sucks. But it doesn’t suck as much as systemic racism. And I’m not going to stop using my platform to advocate for it.”
