Laura Lynne Duffy Biography
Who is Laura Lynne Duffy ?
Laura Lynne Duffy, a math teacher at Fontbonne Hall in Brooklyn, was initially suspended for her tweet.
A Brooklyn high school teacher is out of a job in the wake of her anti-police tweet related to the deaths of NYPD officers Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora, authorities said Thursday.
Laura Lynne Duffy, a math teacher at Fontbonne Hall in Brooklyn, was suspended Wednesday for a post she made about a “dress down” event honoring officers shot to death in Harlem last month.
Apparently, the profits would be donated to the families of the police officers.
“If anyone was wondering, I am intentionally dressing up today. #Abolition #BLM,” Duffy wrote on the account, which had 69 followers and was set to private.
The Fontbonne fundraiser came on the same day that thousands gathered for Mora’s funeral at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
On Thursday, the private Catholic school said it had concluded an investigation into the tweet.
“After management conducted a thorough investigation, Laura Lynne Duffy is no longer employed at Fontbonne Hall, effective Friday 2/4/22,” the management message read.
Duffy did not respond to an email from The Post.
Mora and Rivera were fatally injured on January 21 when they responded to a domestic call in Harlem and were ambushed by gunman Lashawn McNeil. Rivera, 22, died that night, while Mora, 27, died after being taken off life support several days later.
McNeil, 47, was shot by a third officer and later died of his injuries.

Duffy’s tweet was the latest example of widely circulated anti-police posts on social media that have sparked a backlash.
Coney Island Prep math teacher Christopher Flanigan “has no job anymore” following his Instagram post last week that appeared to encourage violence against mourners gathered at Rivera’s funeral, though he said his comments were misunderstood.
And Manhattan actress Jacqueline Guzman was kicked out of a theater company for complaining about street closures during Rivera’s funeral.
