Napolitano on Protestors: ‘We Don’t Have To Listen To This Crap’

University of California President Janet Napolitano told a fellow regent that they “didn’t have to listen to this crap” as protesters yelled about potential tuition hikes at the university.

According to KPIX-TV, protests began during a regents meeting Wednesday in San Francisco. The cameras stayed on the UC regents who seemed confused. That’s when Napolitano leans over and says, “Let’s just break. Let’s go, let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap.” Her mic was on at the time and caught the comment.

The former Secretary of Homeland Security for the Obama administration had a different tone when she was speaking directly into the microphone at the very same meeting. “They want to be sure that their voices are being heard and I want to commit to them that their voices are being heard,” Napolitano said.

The protesters at the regents meetings were upset about potential tuition hikes at the university.

Shortly after Naploitano’s “crap” remark, the regents left the room and continued their meeting later.
