GUTH 2

Controversy over a tweet sent by a KU professor about the deadly Navy Yard shooting.

On Monday, journalism professor David Guth tweeted, “@DWGuth: #NavyYardShooting The blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God damn you.”

KU responded on social media saying,”his personal tweet doesn’t represent KU. the shooting is a terrible tragedy & our hearts go out to the victims & their families.”

The Kansas State Rifle Assocation is now calling on the university to fire Guth.

Guth went on to say in an online article that he does not regret the tweet.
