When asked for additional comment and whether he stood by his words in the post, Ewell told CNN in an email he “apologized profusely” and had “nothing left to add.” Ewell did not acknowledge CNN’s inquiry as to whether his resignation from VWU came in response to the post.
“If you were ignorant, anti-American, and anti-Christian enough to vote for Biden, I really don’t want to be your social friend on social media,” the alleged post said. “I wouldn’t hang out with you in real life, I don’t want to hang out with you virtually either. You have corrupted the election. You have corrupted our youth. You have corrupted our country. I have standards and you don’t meet them. Please remove yourself.”
In a statement posted on its website, Virginia Wesleyan University confirmed Monday that the university had accepted Ewell’s resignation. Ewell had been a professor at VWU since 2008, according to The Virginian-Pilot article.
Stephanie Smaglo, VWU’s chief marketing officer, told CNN Monday the university had “no additional information at this time.”
