Tyler the Creator came under some serious fire recently after an ad campaign he created for Mountain Dew was viewed as racist and sexist by critics. Well now the controversial rapper is speaking out about the commercial and says the whole thing was blown WAY out of proportion!
Most notably, Syracuse University Professor Boyce Watkins called it "arguably the most racist commercial in history." But Tyler just does't understand where he's getting that idea, saying:

James Franco's next academic adventure to secure a law degree!
If you recall, the actor has some serious beef with Jose Angel Santana, the former NYU professor who sued the school for what he claims was unfair termination from his job for giving his famous student a "D" grade…and then turned him litigious claws on James himself after justifying his poor marks on the fact that he was a "bad teacher!"

Sources say that "he did it so that she would never be able to kiss again." He reportedly said, "I'll get four years, but you're getting a life sentence."
Unfortunately, he was absolutely correct. Although plastic surgeons have

Yesterday, gay Iowa man Scott Arnold, who's an adjunct professor of writing at William Penn University, had the following exchange with Newt Gingrich:
"I asked him if he’s elected, how does he plan to engage gay Americans. How are we to support him? And he told me to support Obama."
So awful and disrespectful! More from Arnold:

Aw man! We bet the kids in her classes are so bummed!!
Irina Kristy is a 74-year-old professor who taught math with a hard-to-understand accent. Oh, and she also ran a meth lab with her son! No wonder her reviews on RateMyProfessor sucks…
On November 7, the feds busted her — finding evidence in her home after a good day's search.
She was running the whole shebang with her 29-year-old son too!!! Eww…
The charges Ms. Kristy faces are distribution of meth, conspiracy to violate the drug law, and drug violation in a school zone.
We give her a big fat F…for EFFED UP!

Michigan State University professor Danny Guthrie has been photographing himself with students, some who are nude, for over 40 years and calls it "art."
Kinda weird, right?
His pictures (like the one above) have been under scrutiny recently, with some calling them "obscene" and oppressive to women.
He responded with this statement:
