FIRED: Missouri Professor Filmed Asking for 'Muscle'
Melissa Click, the University of Missouri professor who was filmed trying to intimidate journalists during a campus protest, has been fired, reports CNN.
At an executive session Wednesday, the school's Board of Curators voted 4-2 to terminate Click's employment. Click has the right to appeal the decision.
"The board believes that Dr. Click's conduct was not compatible with university policies and did not meet expectations for a university faculty member," board spokeswoman Pam Henrickson said in a statement on Thursday.
Courtney Fitzpatrick, a spokesperson for Click, said, "She is not taking interviews and has no comment at this time."
