Black Female NYU Law Student Loses $250K Job Offer After She Calls Hamas Atrocities “Necessary”

A New York University law school student who was set to earn $250,000 at a big law firm on Wall Street after she graduates, just fumbled the bag.

Ryna Workman, 24, a non-binary student at NYU’s School of Law sent a weekly newsletter saying the recent attack on Israel – which took the lives of innocent Israeli children, women, and citizens this past week was is Israel’s ‘full responsibility.’

The Palestinian-Israel issue is a complicated one, which people may disagree – but what sense does it make to say this type of inflammatory things when people are reeling from such a horrible attack?

Here’s what she wrote, just one day after nearly 1,000 Israelis were killed.

Ryna was given a job offer at the law firm of Winston & Strawn, one of the biggest law firms in the world. She was set to make a guaranteed $250k+ once she graduated. Now that’s all up in smoke.

Yesterday the law firm out out the following statement confirming that they withdrew her offer.

Workman, who goes by the pronouns they/them, wrote in a weekly newsletter to fellow Student Bar Association students: ‘Hi y’all.

‘This week, I want to express, first and foremost, my unwavering and absolute solidarity with Palestinians in their resistance against oppression toward liberation and self-determination.

‘Israel bears full responsibility for this tremendous loss of life.

‘This regime of state-sanctioned violence created the conditions that made resistance necessary.’

Referencing violent terrorist group Hamas, who have murdered innocent Israeli children, Workman said: ‘I will not condemn Palestinian resistance.’

Workman has worked as a summer associate for two years at Winston & Strawn.

They continued in the email: ‘I condemn the violence of apartheid. I condemn the violence of settler colonialism. I condemn the violence of military occupation. I condemn the violence of dispossession and stolen homes. I condemn the violence of trapping thousands in an open-air prison.
