Ferris State University in Michigan has reached a settlement with a professor for posting a provocative, often profanity-laced video to students ahead of the new semester in January. Associated Press informed. According to the agreement, he will retire and receive $95,000. Professor Barry Mehler also agreed not to criticize Ferris State for three years. If he criticizes the university, he could be forced to pay $60,000.
In the video, he said he is afraid to teach in person during COVID-19 because he is already 74 years old and that he plans to retire at the end of the semester. Mehler’s faculty union supported him and said the university was wrong to suspend him.
“Back to the show,” Meller says youtube videos, in which he first appears wearing an astronaut helmet. “I want to introduce myself before we meet F to F, as we say these days, which everyone knows means fuck to fuck—which really means we’ve all been fucked.”
Mehler, the staff historian, tells students that if they see him in person in class, he’ll be wearing a $300 helmet because it has high-efficiency particulate filters that protect “me and you from this deadly virus that spread around. »
Meller then goes on a profanity-laced rant about how no “super administrator is going to tell me how to run a class because I’m a fucking tenured professor. So if you want to complain to your dean, screw you. Forward. I’m going to retire at the end of this year and I couldn’t care less.’
