Andrew B. Reeves
In a video, provided exclusively to the TPUSA’s Professor Watchlist team by an anonymous source, Andrew Reeves is seen screaming at his class for not properly wearing their masks.
As of September 2021, Utica College requires all students and employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. While masks are not required for vaccinated individuals, Dr. Reeves still requires them for his class.
The incident began when a student lowered his mask to sneeze and then placed it back on his face. Dr. Reeves then reprimanded the student and ordered him to keep his mask on at all times. The student responded that it felt disgusting to sneeze into a mask that would be worn all day, with others in the class audibly agreeing.
Dr. Reeves then launched into a bizarre analogy; if two people were in the bathroom and one were to pee on the other without wearing pants, the other person would still get wet. However, if the students were wearing pants, he would only wet himself. Dr. Reeves compared this situation to the aforementioned student urging him to keep his mask on even when sneezing.
Other students then retorted that his analogy was disgusting and what he was advocating for was unsanitary. This caused Dr. Revers to launch into a profanity-laced tirade.
Dr. Reeves proceeded to accuse students of contributing to the pandemic by not wearing masks. Dr. Reeves further alleged that without masks, his unvaccinated son would contract COVID and die.
He additionally screamed that “we are in year two,” of the pandemic because “people could not wear masks for two weeks.”
A source that wishes to remain anonymous confirmed there have been multiple instances of this behavior while in class. In addition to his verbal outbursts, Dr. Reeves has repeatedly removed students from his class for failing to properly secure his mask. Students have reported being thrown out of class for lowering a mask to drink water or because they could not breathe properly while covering their faces.
The Professor Watchlist Team reached out to Dr. Revees for comment but has not received a reply by the time of publication.
