Shellyne Rodriguez, a college professor from New York City who threatened a reporter with a machete in May, has apparently found employment as an adjunct professor at another school. The Cooper Union School of Art, a private institution in Manhattan, has listed Rodriguez as an adjunct professor teaching a sculpture class during the fall semester. The school has yet to respond to inquiries regarding her hiring. This comes after Rodriguez was caught on video wielding a machete and threatening New York Post reporter Reuven Fenton. The incident occurred when Fenton visited Rodriguez’s apartment for comment, after she had confronted Hunter College students for displaying anti-abortion materials. Rodriguez followed Fenton outside and pursued him with the machete. She turned herself into the police and was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, as well as menacing. Rodriguez claims to be the real victim in this situation and says it has had a severe impact on her mental health. She has since been fired from Hunter College and is involved in a federal lawsuit against the NYPD, accusing them of brutality and trapping protesters during a Black Lives Matter demonstration. The lawsuit states that around 250 people, including Rodriguez, were arrested that night and held in close quarters during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The NYPD has denied these allegations. The case is still ongoing in the judicial system.
