The University of Queensland said it was providing support for staff and students.

“Mutual respect and diversity are core values of the university, and we hope that everyone shows consideration for those affected during the difficult days ahead,” a spokeswoman said.

The Liberal National Club was disendorsed by the LNP in December, and on Monday night the UQ Liberal National Club Facebook page was deleted.

“Twitter is broken,” Christensen said in a tweet before deactivating his Twitter account. “It’s for ad hominem attacks & pile-ons, not real discourse. And it’s aided and abetted by the media.”
