New Jersey Professor Suspended Over Game Of Thrones Picture


(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.
