Asheen Phansey Wiki
Asheen Phansey was fired after jokingly suggesting on Facebook that Iran’s leader should make a list of significant cultural sites in the United States to attack. Later, he was fired for joking about Trump’s 52 cultural sites tweet.
On January 05, Donald Trump tweeted “Targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!.”
Then, he Tweeted he wrote “Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader who had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently….” and in the same day he Tweeted another by saying that “..hundreds of Iranian protesters. He was already attacking our Embassy and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years. Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans or American assets, we have…..”

However, Asheen Phansey wrote on Facebook after Donald Trump said “In Retaliation, Ayatollah Khomenei should tweet a list of 52 sites of beloved American cultural heritage that he would bomb. Um. Mall of America?. …Kardashian residence?” he wrote.
Then his Facebook post was shared online and attracted online critics and they called on Babson College to respond. Babson College suspended Asheen and updated a statement on its website.
On January 8, 2020, the college wrote “Babson College condemns any type of threatening words and/or actions condoning violence and/or hate. This particular post from a staff member on his personal Facebook page does not represent the values and culture of Babson College. While we understand he has deleted the posts, we have immediately suspended him, with pay, pending the completion of our investigation. Also, we are cooperating with local, state and federal authorities.”
Then, on January 9, 2020, they released another statement Babson College conducted a prompt and thorough investigation related to a post shared on a staff member’s personal Facebook page that does not represent the values and culture of the College. Based on the results of the investigation, the staff member is no longer a Babson College employee. As we have previously stated, Babson College condemns any type of threatening words and/or actions condoning violence and/or hate.”
Who is Asheen Phansey?
He was a College professor at Babson College and he describes himself as “I am a global leader who draws on my subject-matter expertise in business-model and technological innovation for a sustainable economy. Using my creative pragmatism and drawing upon my extensive network, I work with others to create shared value across internal groups and external stakeholders.
“I work best by setting a clear vision and strategy and enabling a diverse group to execute its projects. I will always hold the big-picture perspective, but I’m quite comfortable rolling up my sleeves and digging into a spreadsheet, document or deck. I believe in consensus leadership, and in leading with integrity and by example.
Despite tempering with my engineering degree, I’m a classic abstract-thinking extrovert. I love writing and public speaking, and excel at articulating a responsible company’s purpose and values, long-term vision, and successes and challenges, and in inspiring and persuading all manner of audiences.
My objective is to work as an intrapreneur for a large, impactful, purpose-driven organization to move it, and its industry, toward greater sustainability and resilience and long-term financial success.”
