The full statement:
We are disheartened by recent comments directed toward Pepperdine alumna Michelle Fields. This language reflects neither Pepperdine’s values nor its commitment to civil discourse.
The university is referring to a comment posted at the Crooks and Liars blog accusing Fields of going “full retard.” No mention of Professor Russell Burgos, whom Fields accused of posting the comment. Burgos denies that he is responsible, implying that his Disqus account has been hacked.
By the way, Burgos has not yet responded to our request that he authorize Disqus to disclose his “hacker’s” IP address.
Tweeter claiming to be Prof. Russell Burgos says Michelle Fields got him mixed up with someone else; Update: The real Burgos confirms Twitter account is his; Update: Burgos’ story seems to change; Updated with latest email from Burgos; Updated with new tweets from Fields
