Professor Who Called Israelis ‘Pigs’ And ‘Irredeemable Excrement’ No Longer Employed, School Confirms

School of the Art Institute of Chicago confirms professor who made anti-Semitic comments is no longer employed

Mika Tosca, a former associate professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) who went viral after calling Israelis “pigs” and “irredeemable excrement” after Hamas’ massacre, is no longer employed by the school.

A spokesperson for the prestigious art school confirmed to The Daily Wire that Tosca is no longer employed, but declined to comment further on “personnel matters.”

Tosca also announced the news on X, formerly known as Twitter, writing, “As of Jan 1, I will no longer be working for SAIC.”

“PALESTINE WILL BE FREE,” Tosca added on the now-deleted account.

Mika Tosca calls Israelis "pigs" and "very very bad people"

Associate professor Mika Tosca came under fire after calling Israelis “pigs” and “very very bad people” in a tweet after Hamas’s massacre of Israeli civilians

.“Israelis are pigs. Savages. Very very bad people. Irredeemable excrement,” Tosca wrote on October 17,  according to Canary Mission

“After the past week, if your eyes aren’t open to the crimes against humanity that Israel is committing and has committed for decades, and will continue to commit, then I suggest you open them,” Tosca added. “It’s disgusting and grotesque. May they all rot in hell.”

Tosca apologized for the post, writing, “I am deeply sorry for writing what I wrote, and for hurting many people with my words, and I am especially sorry to Israeli people that I broadly placed at fault for the war.”

“I know that my words perpetuated harmful stereotypes,” Tosca added. “I allowed my reaction to the violence in Israel and Palestine to take an inappropriate and offensive form, and I am taking proactive steps to learn how I can do better and be better.”

A petition created in October by an SAIC alumnus calling for Tosca’s dismissal received over 2,400 signatures.

In a tweet on October 10, Tosca accused Israel of “making money off of war.”

“Always has, always will,” Tosca added.

Canary Mission claims Tosca retweeted an October 10 tweet that said: “how tidily should this have proceeded? this is ‘terrorism’ cos Hamas has targeted civilians. ok should they simply have declared war on their warden? would the IDF [Israel Defense Forces] have met them in formation on a field, beating drums, for a fair fight? I do not love violence but what is expected?”

Tosca’s Instagram account describes Tosca as a “radically optimistic transsexual climate scientist.”

Tosca previously worked at NASA’s renowned Jet Propulsion Laboratory before switching to SAIC. Tosca explained the 2017 career move as a way of helping scientists better communicate.

“I think artists and designers and other creatives have a really special and unique way of imagining and interpreting and analyzing our world in a way that scientists don’t always do,” Tosca told Chicago’s PBS station. “I wanted to think about new ways, or perhaps more effective ways, of ultimately getting the general public to buy into the science but also the solutions to climate change.”

Tosca did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
