NYU Professor Fired for Giving James Franco a Low Grade?

NYU Professor Fired for Giving James Franco a Low Grade?Submit Comment
Jose Angel Santana, who taught James Franco in "Directing the Actor" class at NYU, has filed a lawsuit with the university claiming that he was wrongfully terminated for being Hispanic and giving Franco a low grade.

According to the lawsuit, Santana had to give Franco a "D" for missing 12 out of 14 classes. When others learned of this, the professor suffered public humiliation, something he claims would have never happened to a white professor.

He also mentions other professors, like Jay Anania, as someone who favored Franco in order to get something in return. Anania was hired by Franco to write and direct the film "Shadows and Lies."

NYU called the lawsuit "ridiculous," adding: "It is regrettable and disappointing to see a faculty member -- former or otherwise -- discuss any student's grade for the purpose of his or her personal publicity."

Not surprised. Universities are crooked as hell and I have believed they fix grades for certain students and athletes.

You know Mr. Hand. I've been thinking about this "our time" thing. And I don't see anything wrong with having a little grub while learning.

Sum 'professor' i hope him and casey anthonys lawyer is not puertorican
So he wasnt spanish when he was hired and he became one when he gave the grade
That pic is from Columbia U by the way but he did skip this class like 14times
I never heard of a whole university being a d*ckrider

@bando

I knew purposely writing that comment would get you all flustered.


Anyway, I find it amusing how this Franco character is always involved in some random sh*t. Sells invisible art, hosts the Oscars, did a transgender magazine, soap operas, etc.

Why are we assuming he's telling the truth about Franco and not that this is just a sh*tty professor trying to cling to what he can to make a buck? Honestly, the latter seems more likely, does anyone here think that Franco gives a sh*t if he makes a D? He could afford to take that class 15 times at 15 different universities.

I currently go to NYU and know that he enjoyed other activities other than class because last year I saw him go into the dormroom next to mine with some freshman in the morning and come out with another at night.

The best part? One was a dude.

@pornfly - not cool man. Penn st. is a college all about traditions and respect. It's a privilege to loose your virginity to disgusting old men in the penn st. locker rooms, not a right! Or atleast that's what the wr coach told COC...

And this is 75% of the reason why racism still exists in this country. . . people have to look at everything as black and white. It is more likely that the professor himself is a racist because he had to immediately jump to this conclusion. Very Spike Lee-esk
