WOW.

Tim Torkildson, who managed social media for Utah's Nomen Global Language Center, was fired after allegedly being scolded by the owner of the school for the "gay undertones" in a blog post about homophones.

This is the perfect community service assignment for Kanye West!

The newlywed was at the L.A. Trade Technical College today as part of his plea deal for beating up a paparazzo.

According to reports, this is Yeezy's third visit to the school, where his role is to talk to aspiring designers about his knowledge and experience in the fashion business. This time he ended up staying for three hours.

He also took a pic with a couple of students! Doesn't he look pretty happy even?

This has to be a better community service gig than picking up trash on the side of a freeway.

Good job, Kanye!
