George Washington University has responded to a New York Times columnist who tattled on a professor for saying mean things about him on Twitter.

GWU associate professor Dave Karpf made a snide joke about New York Times columnist Bret Stephens after an editor at the publication tweeted about there being a bedbug problem in the newsroom.

“The bedbugs are a metaphor,” Karpf tweeted in response Monday afternoon. “The bedbugs are Bret Stephens.”

Stephens took particular issue with Karpf’s insult, even going so far as to delete his Twitter account altogether, but not before contacting Karpf’s boss to make sure he was aware of the situation. Karpf notes that before Stephens drew attention to the tweet, it had only nine likes and zero retweets.
