Former NYU professor Jose Angel Santana may still have his integrity, but he DOESN'T have a job anymore!
While pursuing his graduate film degree at New York University, James Franco received a "D" in his "Directing the Actor II" class for missing 12 out of 14 classes…and soon thereafter his harsh-grading professor was fired!
Professor Santana has filed a lawsuit against NYU in Manhattan Supreme Court, in which he's requesting that the school give him his job back!
Here's what he had to say about it:
"The school has bent over backwards to create a Franco-friendly environment, that’s for sure. The university has done everything in its power to curry favor with James Franco."
And here's what James had to say about the poor grade during an interview last year:
"I did the work…I did well in everything else."
While we obviously love James, and we understand that he was busy shooting 127 Hours while at NYU, his professor has the right to grade him poorly for missing the majority of his classes! That should NOT result in him getting fired!
What do U think? Should this professor get his job back???
