(NEWSER) – The University of Missouri professor who called for “some muscle” to get a journalist away from student protesters says she’s sorry—and she has resigned from her courtesy appointment at the Missouri School of Journalism. In a statement, Melissa Click apologized to the campus community “and journalists at large, for my behavior, and also for the way my actions have shifted attention away from the students’ campaign for justice,” reports the Missourian, which notes that Click is a mass media professor in the Communication Department and that the courtesy appointment at the university’s journalism school had allowed her to “serve on graduate committees for students from other academic units.”
