A Hunter College professor who recently went viral for disrupting a pro-life information table held an apparent machete to a reporter’s neck after he visited her apartment, the New York Post reported.
Shellyne Rodriguez, an adjunct assistant professor at the New York City campus, was videotaped cursing at students operating a Students for Life of America (SFLA) table on May 2 before knocking information cards and fetal models from the table, SFLA reported. She threatened New York Post reporter Reuven Fenton with a machete on Tuesday when he knocked on her apartment door, according to video posted by the Post.
“Get the f–k away from my door, or I’m gonna chop you up with this machete!” she reportedly yelled before opening the door and holding the blade to Fenton’s neck. “Get the f–k away from my door! Get the f–k away from my door!”
Fenton and the videographer left the building after Rodriguez had retreated back inside her apartment building, according to the Post. She then followed them outside holding the machete and warned them to “get the fuck off the block.”
Rodriguez reportedly kicked the photographer in the shins.
“We will take swift and appropriate action,” Hunter College spokesperson Vince DiMiceli told the Post. He said that the school was “outraged” by the video.

Rodriguez accused the pro-life students earlier this month of pushing “propaganda” and said that they weren’t “educating shit.”
“What are you gonna do, like, anti-trans next?” Rodriguez said, according to SFLA’s video. When the student responded that they were talking about abortion, she said it was “bullshit” and “violent.”
“You’re triggering my students,” she said before saying “fuck this shit” and knocking the students’ flyers from the table surface.
“Professionals in a workplace have no business berating students for any reason especially for peacefully engaging in dialogue. Free speech is essential for the growth and development of society, and we’ve seen throughout history the detrimental effect of suppressing free speech,” SFLA Northeast Regional Coordinator Taylor McGee said in its report.
Hunter College, the NY Post and Rodriguez did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
