Brookdale Professor Under Investigation after Cursing Conservative Student in Class (VIDEO)
A Brookdale Community College professor came under fire this week after he screamed at a conservative student, “F*ck your life!” during class.
The college opened an investigation on Sociology professor Howard Finkelstein after video was posted online of him slamming his hand on a desk and screaming profanity at a conservative student.
Brookdale Community College is investigating a sociology professor after one of his students said the teacher was targeting him for being conservative.
The situation came to a head last week during a discussion about sexual harassment, Brookdale student Christopher Lyle said.
During the exchange, professor Howard Finkelstein slammed his hand on a desk and told Lyle, “f— your life,” which was caught on video by another student.
Brookdale spokeswoman Avis McMillon said she could not comment because of the ongoing investigation. Finkelstein was not immediately available for comment.
But Lyle said the harassment has been happening all semester in Sociology 105, Intercultural Communication: The Person and the Process.
He said he believes he’s being targeted because he’s a conservative who supports President Donald Trump. He said he also believes that the negative attention has impacted his grade in the class.
According to USMC blog several students have quit class due to the professor’s abusive outbursts.
