I'd say that unless her critics want to pay her not to work, they have to accept that she has a right to earn a living and to do business with whoever would do business with her.
I don't know that people are saying she doesn't have a right to work, or that Columbia doesn't have a right to hire her.
But people can express displeasure with the University for giving her a paycheck.
