A California professor was placed on leave after a video of her berating a student during a Zoom class went viral.
According to the New York Post, an adjunct professor at Cypress College was placed on a leave of absence after she berated 19-year-old student Braden Ellis for calling police “heroes.” The school said that it was the unidentified professor’s first and last class at the school.
“The adjunct professor will be taking a leave of absence for the duration of her assignment at Cypress College,” the school said. “This was her first course at Cypress and she had previously indicated her intention to not return in the fall.”
Ellis was giving a presentation on “cancel culture” and why it is “so destructive and tearing our country apart.” Ellis said that during his speech, he mentioned how activists attempted to “cancel” the children’s show “Paw Patrol” in light of the anti-police sentiment stemming from the Black Lives Matter movement.
