New Jersey Professor Suspended Over Game Of Thrones Picture

GOT-shirt1

(PCM) Francis Schmidt, who is an art professor at Bergen Community College in New Jersey, claims that he was put on an eight day suspension after he posted a photo online of his daughter wearing a Game Of Thrones t-shirt.

The text on the t-shirt featured a quote from the HBO hit series which read “I will take what is mine with fire & blood”.  According to Schmidt, a school official saw the image posted online and perceived it as a threat and reported Schmidt.

The school officials who laid down Schmidt’s disciplinary action were questioned whether or not the reference was meant as a threat against the dean.

We are sure that Schmidt is going to appeal the school over his suspension and the school is calling the situation a private matter.
