A Drexel University associate professor is under fire after tweeting that he was “trying not to vomit” while witnessing a first class passenger give up his seat to an armed service member on a flight.
George Ciccariello-Maher, an associate professor of politics and global studies at the Pennsylvania university, posted a tweet on his private Twitter account Sunday.
“Some guy gave up his first class seat for a uniformed soldier,” Ciccariello-Maher said in the tweet. “People are thanking him. I’m trying not to vomit or yell about Mosul.”
On social media, many shared a screenshot of the private tweet, while expressing their outrage over Ciccariello-Maher's "unpatriotic" comments.
