It seems the Melissa Click saga has come to an end. A few months after being filmed confronting a photojournalist during a student protest at the University of Missouri, the mass media professor was fired yesterday for infringing on the student’s rights.

Click was charged with assault last month for calling for “muscle” to remove photojournalists from a public space on the university campus during the November 2015 protests. Click apologized for the incident shortly after the story went viral.
