Professor Maitland Jones, Jr. has been an organic chemistry professor for decades and has even written textbooks on the subject. But Jones was fired from his job at New York University (NYU) after about a third of students in his organic chemistry class signed a petition, complaining that the class is just too hard.
Jones didn’t do anything wrong. He wasn’t sexually harassing students or calling them names. He was literally just teaching organic chemistry, which is a historically difficult class for pre-med students. Want to be a doctor? You have to take organic chemistry. And that’s a hard class with correct and incorrect answers on every question.
So, after a few dozen of his students signed a petition to fire him, the university actually fired Jones. Here’s a question: Now that Jones is fired, what professor are they going to find who will be able to make organic chemistry less difficult? Especially since Jones literally wrote the organic chemistry textbook that the new teacher will need to use.
Anyway, Greg Gutfeld and a panel of guests tackled this story a few days ago, and as usual, it was hilarious. There’s simply no excuse for these snowflake students getting a teacher fired because their class is hard. Would you want a doctor who couldn’t pass organic chemistry to advise you? Probably not!
