The story involving Harvard graduate Claira Janover has taken on bizarre elements of a Seinfeld episode after the company she claimed she was fired from said that she never worked for them.
A teary-eyed Janover said she was fired from her “government and public-service analyst” job at Deloitte amid the fierce backlash over her threatening to stab anyone who dare to say “All Lives Matter,” rather than Black Lives Matter.
The only problem with Janover playing the victim is that Deloitte confirmed that she was never an employee of the company, the Daily Mail reported Friday.
Deloitte managing director Jonathan Gandal told the British tabloid that Janover “has never been an employee of our organization.”
Instead, according to Gandal, she was “formerly scheduled for a two-week internship later this summer.”
All of which calls to mind the Seinfeld character Cosmo Kramer getting fired from the fictional company Brandt/Leland, which he “accidentally” began working for, though he was never hired.
The offer of an internship was withdrawn because the professional services firm has a company policy forbidding threatening violence.
“Deloitte unequivocally stands against the legacy of systemic bias, racism, and unequal treatment that continues to plague our communities,” Gandal said. “We encourage and support our colleagues to speak out on these issues of critical importance to society, but our policies strictly prohibit invoking or threatening violence.”
After posting the threat in a Tik-Tok video, Janover returned to the scene of the crime to blubber about the consequences of her irresponsible actions.
“Standing up for Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people,” Claira cried, painting herself as a martyr. “The job that I worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me has called me and fired me because of everything.”
Naturally, it was the fault of Trump supporters.
“Trump supporters took my job away from me,” Claira whined. “I have gotten death threats, rape threats, violent threats. Now my future’s entirely compromised because Trump supporters have decided to come for my life.”
She also trashed Deloitte in the video, accusing the company of being “cowardly” and informed them that she was going to be “an indelible change in the world.”
“You guys suck,” Janover declared. “I’m too strong for you. I am too strong for any of you, All Lives Matter racist Trump supporters. It sucks but it doesn’t suck as much as systemic racism.”
“I’m sorry, Deloitte, that you can’t see that,” she added. “That you were cowardly enough to fight somebody who’s going to make an indelible change in the world and is going to have an impact.”
While the Ivy League grad got her due, before you start feeling there may still be hope for society, classmates have started a GoFundMe campaign “to compensate slightly for her loss of income.”
From the job she never had.
The page says “Claira is not in a financially stable situation,” and adds that said she is “an orphan with no living blood relatives who lost her single mother in 2019 to ovarian cancer and she attended Harvard on full financial aid.”
To date, $8.525 has been collected from “The Claira Janover is Incredible Fund.”
