Threats Against Ms. Click [...]

“I was in a space where even the chancellor was spending a lot of time,” she says. “There was no reason to think I was doing something that wasn’t sanctioned by the university.”

On the day Ms. Click clashed with Mr. Schierbecker, she arrived home to an email saying her tenure bid had cleared the next hurdle: approval by a college-level committee.

But by that evening, the video had taken off. When the footage of Ms. Click screaming and pointing made national news, friends emailed and called to see if she was OK.

Mixed in with her university email were death threats, and at home, notes appeared about rape. Ms. Click checked in with her department chair, who initially reassured her that the commotion would die down. (Source)
