We respectfully ask you to terminate/ask for the resignation of Katherine 'Kathy' Dettwyler, an adjunct professor at your university.  What she posted on FB is totally deplorable and unacceptable !  "People from all over the country are calling for a University of Delaware adjunct professor to be fired after she wrote on Facebook Tuesday that Otto Warmbier "got exactly what he deserved" after being taken into custody by North Korea, falling into a coma and dying.  On her personal Facebook page, Kathy Dettwyler, an anthropology professor, wrote that Warmbier was "typical of a mindset of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueless males who come into my classes." 

Her statements reflect badly on the UD, no matter that you have no control over what others say, but we do believe you have the influence to get this disrespectful, horrid, ugly woman off your faculty !!!!  I cannot believe she was so cold and uncaring as to make this statement in the face of fellow Americans, students and especially in the faces of his grieving family and friends.  NEVER would I want this type of person teaching my young adults, or ANY young adults, who could be influenced by an "educator".  Thank you, sincerely, for your kind attention to this matter.
