What's Your Take?

 A Yale University dean has been placed on suspension for controversial remarks made on her personal Yelp reviews of local businesses. The dean made offensive remarks regarding local businesses and customers including referring to customers at one restaurant as “white trash”. Some would say the dean was exercising her freedom of speech.  

What’s your take? Was the suspension appropriate? Should her remarks be protected under the First Amendment?

No, Political correctness gone amuck

Yes because her views will affect her opinion and treatment of students.

Wonder what she would have said about a soul food joint?
