Harvard Grad Fired by Deloitte For 'All Lives Matter' Stabbing TikTok Video

A Harvard graduate who posted a viral video jokingly saying she will stab anyone who says "All Lives Matter" said she has now been fired from her job.

Claira Janover, who worked at Deloitte after graduating with a degree in Government and Psychology from the Ivy League college earlier this year, previously said she had been getting death threats over her TikTok video calling out those who have "the nerve, the sheer entitled caucasity" to say All Lives Matter.

"Imma stab you," Janover said. "Imma stab you and while you're struggling and bleeding out, Imma show you my paper cut and say, 'My cut matters too.'"

In a separate video, Janover said she began getting threats because her "analogous joke," was taken seriously by supporters of President Donald Trump online.

Janover added she even pointed out that what she was saying was a joke in a message underneath the video.

Right-wing pundit Ann Coulter was one of those who tweeted out the original clip, describing Janover as an "Asian Karen."

Janover added that Department of Homeland "might be monitoring my name right now" as people were also reporting her for alleged domestic terrorism offenses over the apparent threat.

Janover later removed the "All Lives Matter" video from her TikTok account, but versions of it are still being shared elsewhere on social media.

In another video posted on Wednesday, a teary Janover says that she has now lost her job at Deloitte, adding "this is what Trump supporters wanted."

"Standing up to Black Lives Matter put me in a place online to be seen by millions of people," she said.

"The job that I worked really hard to get that meant a lot to me just called me and fired me."

In the video, Janover hit out at Deloitte for publicly stating they "stand against systemic bias, racism and unequal treatment" while firing her for supporting the BLM movement.

"I'm still not going to stop talking about and defending Black Lives Matter. You can't take away my spirit and my devotion towards human rights."

In a statement to Newsweek, Deloitte said Janover was never an employee of theirs and was instead "formerly scheduled for a two-week internship later this summer."

Janover criticized Deloitte again in another video she posted of her crying about being fired from her job.

"I have gotten 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," she said.

"I'm too strong for you. I'm too strong for any of you 'All Lives Matter,' racist Trump supporters. 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," she added. "That you were cowardice enough to fight somebody who's going to make an indelible change in the world and is going to have an impact."

The company added in a statement: "Deloitte unequivocally stands against the legacy of systemic bias, racism, and unequal treatment that continues to plague our communities.

"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."
