Melissa Click, currently a Communications Professor at the University of Missouri, is the target of a lot of critcism after it was revealed that she physically threatened a student journalist who was recording the #ConcernedStudent1950 protest this week.
Melissa Click first entered the national spotlight on Wednesday evening after a video depicting the protest and the attempt to censor the media went viral.
She’s since made her social media accounts private.
Towards the end of the video, you can clearly see that Melissa is trying to remove a journalist from the quad. When the journalist disobeys her request, Melissa immediately asks for some “muscle” to forcibly remove the student journalist from the quad. That same student journalist then asks why he needs to leave a public space. Melissa simply responds, “That’s a really good one, I’m a communications faculty and I really get that argument, but you need to go. You need to go, you need to go.”
The whole situation from Melissa is totally amateur and questionable whether or not a woman who’s unable to deal with one student journalist should be teaching at a large university, especially when the #ConcernedStudent1950 movement pretty much demanded people step down from their position. Where’s her formal resignation?
