Mizzou Student Threatens To Starve Himself To Death If President Is Not Removed From Office


Mizzou student Jonathan L. Butler recently took to Facebook, as so many now do, to discuss the social injustices he, as “a black man who believes in freedom” feels on the school’s campus. A series of acts, some particularly heinous, like a swastika recently being drawn in feces outside a residence hall have left him desperate to make the world aware of what’s going on at Mizzou, at the hands, he says of president Tim Wolfe.

In an effort to make the school answer to Mizzou’s alleged ongoings, Butler is going on a hunger strike until Wolfe is either removed from office or until “my internal organs fail and my life is lost.”
