A white male university professor has quit after posing as a female immigrant of color on Twitter to make sexist and racist comments.

The assistant chemistry professor at the University of New Hampshire, who the Daily Beast has identified, used the now-deleted account ‘The Science Femme, Woman in STEM’ and the Twitter handle @piney_the, according to the Portsmouth Herald.

The account was routinely sexistracist, and transphobic. He was also accused of attacking mostly women of color who disagreed with him and encouraging his followers to do the same, the Associated Press reported.

In one tweet on his account with 13,000 followers, he wrote: “Here it is: I was successful in killing my dept’s woke statement on recent social unrest.
