The decision was announced in an email to School of Foreign Service students Friday. It was made in order to “prevent further disruptions to her students and out of an abundance of caution for the security of our community,” according to The Voice.
Hellman also said in the email that “while we teach diplomacy as a subject, we expect diplomacy as a community.”

Fair’s original tweet stated: “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps,” referring to Republican senators. “Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.”
Fair recently explained her inflammatory tweet as an “experiment” after it was met with severe backlash.
After the tweet was posted, Fair’s account was briefly suspended twice by Twitter, although she insisted that the suspensions were a mistake on Twitter’s part in an interview with The Washington Post.
After the announcement was made Friday, Professor Fair continued to tweet her thoughts on various matters.
Years ago when I worked in a domestic violence shelter in Chicago, many residents described how their mothers in law held them down as their husbands raped them or set them on fire. This is what today’s GOP women are doing to us. Their feet are on our necks.
