Alexandra Wallace Leaving UCLA

I was disappointed that she apologized and I am disappointed she is leaving UCLA rather than toughing it out.

All of her statements since the controversy sound like they have been written by a publicist.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

The UCLA student who created a controversial video criticizing Asians announced late Friday that she would no longer attend UCLA because of death threats against her and “being ostracized from an entire community.” In a statement released to the campus newspaper, Alexandra Wallace also apologized for what she said was her mistake in making the video and offending Asians.

“Especially in the wake of the ongoing disaster in Japan, I would do anything to take back my insensitive words. I could write apology letters all day and night, but I know they wouldn’t erase the video from your memory, nor would they act to reverse my inappropriate action,” her statement to the Daily Bruin said.
