A Drexel University professor is placed on leave after writing a series of tweets, saying white supremacy was behind the Las Vegas massacre.

Less than 24-hours after a gunman opened fire in Las Vegas killing 58 innocent people, Professor George Ciccariello-Maher took to social media claiming the massacre was a result of white men “not getting what they want.”

Drexel University officials tried to detach themselves from the professor’s ideas, but ultimately decided to place him on leave for safety reasons.

Though the instructor claims his tweets have been misrepresented, some students feel his ideas shouldn not be welcomed on their campus.

Ciccariello-Maher says he’s ready to take legal action to protect his first amendment and academic rights.
