The Harvard graduate who went viral for sharing a threatening video on TikTok that was opposed to “all lives matter” has in turn blamed Trump supporters for the backlash she faces. Claira Janover created a TikTok video in which she stated she would “stab anyone who said ‘all lives matter’.” She has also been fired from her job recently, and directly blames Trump supporters for this, citing The Daily Mail. The Harvard graduate fired from her “dream job” at Deloitte. The graduate’s video caught the attention of her bosses at Deloitte after it went viral. The story regarding Janover’s firing from Deloitte also appears in the New York Post.
“’Imma stab you and while you’re bleeding out, imma show you my paper cut and say, “my cut matters too,” said Janover in her TikTok video as quoted by The Daily Mail. Janover recently graduated from Harvard University with a degree in government and psychology. Since Janover lost her position at Deloitte, she has received donations from her supporters via Venmo and GoFundMe.
Janover has expressed ire in further recordings over her firing from Deloitte which she states succumbed to “cowardice” for firing her. Deloitte has a company policy on their website which Janover gestured to in further TikTok videos. Janover noted that Deloitte has a policy against all forms of “systemic bias, racism and unequal treatment.”
The New York post also quoted Janover as stating that her threats were an “analogy” and not threatening speech. She then proceeded to give her opinion that Trump supporters “took her job away.”
“Trump supporters took my job away from me. 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,” said Janover in her further TikTok recordings, as quoted by New York Post.
Janover also made a defiant statement against the Trump supporters she alleged cost her employment, in tears as she recorded.
“I’m too strong for you. I’m too strong for any of you ‘All Lives Matter,’ racist Trump supporters. 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,” said Janover as she was further quoted by New York Post.
Anger exploded via Twitter in the wake of Claira Janover’s violent TikTok message. Many private users expressed distress that Janover had encouraged her 11,000 followers to commit acts of violence against people of a dissenting political opinion.
The video received attention from the Human Events editor Ian Miles Cheong.
“Claira Janover may be the most insufferable person on the planet. Instead of holding a conversation with a Trump supporter, she invents one to tear down as a “white supremacist,” said Mr. Cheong in a tweet that was posted at 11:58 am on July 1. Mr. Cheong also shared one of Janover’s TikTok videos with his comments to illustrate his opinion of her.
