Excerpts from Adrian Kelly’s abusive Twitter feed


Balliol College Fellow, Adrian Kelly’s public Twitter feed (@AdrianDKelly)

Mr Kelly’s intimidating “Search & Destroy T-shirt displays a tattoo of a member of a violent punk band.

Left: Mr Kelly searching for an innocent puppy who was cowering and trying to run from him.

Right: Mr Kelly destroying an innocent puppy by grabbing him by his ear and then beating him.

Below is a typical tweet from Mr Kelly threatening his students and colleagues

with physical violence, and then insulting and bullying them.

(Note that a “welly” is a boot).

Below is a Twitter exchange with Mr Kelly in which he boasts about

his physically abusive style of lecturing at the University of Oxford.

Below is a Twitter exchange with Mr Kelly

in which he apparently makes the misogynist positions either that:

all Oxford academics should be male and should display their erect penises, or that:

those that are male should display their erect penises

and female academics at Oxford should accept this.

Below is a typical tweet from Mr Kelly abusing and threatening his academic colleagues.

The UK’s Crown public body of the Government of the United Kingdom on employment, ACAS, makes the following statements on Social Media - Discipline and Grievance:

Below is a typical tweet from Mr Kelly disrespectfully abusing the very British institution

which granted Mr Kelly and his family British citizenship.

Below is a typical tweet from Mr Kelly boasting about his swearing at students.

In this video, Mr Kelly is standing just outside his neighbour’s living room windows.

Mr Kelly is clearly angry and the puppy is clearly afraid of Mr Kelly.

The frightened puppy can be seen cowering under the neighbour’s garden table,

and desperately and repeatedly tries to escape from Mr Kelly.

Then, in front of his shocked neighbours,

Mr Kelly then viciously grabs the puppy, savagely picking him up by his ear,

at which point the wounded puppy emits a pained yelp [ensure audio is on].

Mr Kelly then drags the puppy out of camera view,

where the neighbour witnesses Mr Kelly then savagely beat the puppy.

Mr Kelly then roughly throws the puppy over his shoulder and storms off.

In this video, Mr Kelly is at the bottom of the garden

and can once again be seen angry at the frightened puppy for not obeying him.

Mr Kelly lunges on the ground toward the scared puppy, who desperately tries to escape.

Mr Kelly then firmly grabs the frightened puppy with both hands,

violently shakes him, then flips him upside-down, then slaps him on the head.

Finally, when the traumatised puppy refuses to play with Mr Kelly’s daughter,

Mr Kelly chases and tackles him one last time before, shaking him

and then storming off with the frightened puppy in his arms.

Mr Kelly’s ostensibly upset daughter witnessed this abuse,

before being instructed by an angry Mr Kelly that her brief “playtime” was over.

She follows him, apparently in tears.

During the recording, the neighbour can be heard [ensure audio is on]

expressing surprise that Mr Kelly did not throw the puppy in the air,

as he had done on previous occasions.

Below is a Twitter exchange in which Mr Kelly misogynistically mocks the tweet

from a junior female mathematics academic,

who is proudly highlighting a presentation from a senior female mathematics professor.

Adrian Kelly’s clear violation of

Harassment and Disciplinary Policies

of the University of Oxford and Balliol College

This clearly demonstrates the endemic misogyny at universities (like Oxford)

and helps to explain why, even in the 21st century,

women remain underrepresented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths).
