DJ Vlad gets trashed for trying to fire the Princeton professor

DJ Vlad is currently trending on social media for threatening to have a professor at Princeton University fired over comments she made on X (Twitter).

The interviewer and businessman, real name Vladimir Lyubovny, made a veiled threat to a Black Ivy League professor for her criticism of his take on the Kendrick-Drake feud.

It all started on Saturday (May 4) following Kendrick’s back-to-back responses to Drake in their ongoing beef. Vlad commented on social media that Kendrick’s “Not Like Us” needed a better mix. “It detracts from the song,” he said.

Morgan Jenkins, a New York Times bestselling author and Princeton University faculty member, responded that the feud between Kendrick and Drake was “a BLACK FOLK AFFAIR.”

“Wait, so a professor at @Princeton is telling me a white person can’t express their opinions on hip-hop? Is that the way you treat your students?” he said. Jerkins clarified, saying his input was not necessary in a dialogue meant for Black voices.

Vlad then apparently threatened Jenkins, implying that he would try to have her fired from her post at Princeton University.

Vlad mentioned the idea of ​​recording the incident in her ‘permanent file’, whatever that means.

Since then, social media has exploded with commentary, with many condemning Vlad’s actions as an overstep.

Comedian Kevin Fredericks, aka KevOnStage, had also said, “Vlad is crazy for countless reasons, but in this you can see that he saw a black woman and a predominantly white college and tried to use his whiteness against her. AWFUL.”

Similarly, activist Phil Moreland said: “Take back your power and unsubscribe, unfollow and unplug yourself from #VLADTV@adam22 and all other POSERS that ARE NOT OF THE CULTURE!!!! We hunt vultures all summer long!!!”
