A Southern California community college professor berated a student during a Zoom class for calling police officers “heroes.”
Student Braden Ellis had given a presentation during his Cypress College communications class about “cancel culture” and how it is “tearing our country apart,” The Daily Wire reported.
He had used the example of activists trying to “cancel” the children’s show “Paw Patrol” during last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests.
“Paw Patrol” is a children’s cartoon that features police dogs, but protestors called to “defund the paw patrol” in the wake of calls to defund police departments across the country following George Floyd’s death, according to The New York Times.
According to Ellis, students are given a 10-minute question and answer session to respond to presentations, but the professor took the time to scold Ellis instead.
