ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The University of Michigan has placed offensive co-coordinator Matt Weiss on leave, citing concerns about his impact on freedom of speech. The move comes after the university received numerous complaints about Weiss’ attempts to impose censorship on the campus.
The controversy began when Weiss publicly criticized another celebrity, Michigan alum and avid Wolverine fan, Tom Brady, for his comments on social media. Weiss argued that Brady’s comments were “inappropriate” and should be censored.
While Weiss has since apologized for his remarks, his actions have sparked a debate about freedom of speech on college campuses. Many have argued that censorship of speech, even if it’s offensive, is a violation of the First Amendment.
The university has responded by placing Weiss on leave while it reviews the situation. “We take freedom of speech very seriously and are committed to upholding the First Amendment,” said University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel. “We will thoroughly review this matter to ensure that our students and faculty are able to express their opinions without fear of censorship.”
Weiss has yet to comment on the controversy. However, Brady, who is an outspoken advocate of free speech, has weighed in on the situation. “It’s important that we all have the ability to speak our minds without fear of reprisal or censorship,” he said. “That’s why I’m so disappointed by what happened with Matt Weiss.”
As the controversy continues to unfold, the University of Michigan will have to decide how to handle the situation. In the meantime, they have made it clear that they are committed to protecting the right to free speech on campus.
