Remember that guy who wondered if Karma can be instant?
Guess he found out the hard way that it CAN be.

From WCTV Eyewitness News:
The University of Tampa has fired a visiting assistant professor who suggested in a tweet that Hurricane Harvey’s destruction is “instant karma” for Texas because it voted Republican.
Sociology professor Kenneth L. Storey posted the tweet and two responses on Sunday before removing the entire thread and his profile photo.
University spokesman Eric Cardenas said in a statement Tuesday that Storey was fired after the school weathered an outpouring of online outrage over the comments.
The University of Tampa stands in solidarity with those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Any comments to the contrary are not shared by UT.

I emailed President Vaughn of @UofTampa to immediately fire Ken Storey.

Guess he found out the hard way that Karma can indeed be pretty instant.
