Deloitte Sign at the Multinational Professional Services Network | Harvard Graduate Loses Deloitte Job After Viral Video | Featured

Harvard graduate Claira Janover says she lost a job with the Deloitte accounting firm after saying in a viral video that she would “stab” anyone who told her “all lives matter.”

“Standing up for Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people,” Janover says in the video. She added that “the job that I’d worked really hard to get and meant a lot to me has called me and fired me because of everything.”

Janover added that “Trump supporters took my job away from me.”

She received “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.”

Unfair Dismissal?

Deloitte fired her despite a company claim of standing “against systemic bias, racism and unequal treatment,” Janover says. She has a degree in government and psychology.

She tells the company and Trump supporters that she will not be defeated by this setback.

“I’m too strong for you. I’m too strong for any of you ‘All Lives Matter,’ racist Trump supporters,” she says. “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.”

“I’m sorry, Deloitte, that you can’t see that,” Janover adds. “That you were cowardice [sic] enough to fight somebody who’s going to make an indelible change in the world and is going to have an impact.”

In Janover’s original video, she warned anyone with “the nerve, the sheer entitled Caucasity to say, ‘all lives matter.’”

“I’ma stab you,” she said. “I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters, too.’”

Janover later explained that it was an “analogous joke.”
