“In short, no disciplinary action will be taken against Professor Reynolds. The tweet was an exercise of his First Amendment rights,” College of Law dean Melanie D. Wilson said in a statement. “Nevertheless, the tweet offended many members of our community and beyond, and I understand the hurt and frustration they feel.”
UT sees it one way, USA Today sees it another. Kudos to the paper for handling it the right way.
Reynolds claims people “misunderstood” his tweet, but i’m thinking his message was pretty fucking clear.
