Fans, Neil Gaiman Help Bring Justice To Professor Threatened With Criminal Charges For ‘Firefly’ Poster

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Firefly Captain Malcolm Reynolds

Back in September a story caught fire about a theater professor named James Miller at the University of Wisconsin–Stout who was threatened with criminal charges after intellectually challenged campus police removed a completely harmless Firefly poster for referring to killing, despite the fact that the poster actually stood for being fair and honorable.

The university stood behind the decision, and quite the battle unfolded as the professor sought his rightful freedom of speech. Then FIRE (Foundation for Individual Rights in Education) got involved and contacted the university about stopping this nonsense, with no success, and so, being Firefly fans themselves, they took to the internet.

A video of the story and how it unfolded has now been released by FIRE which features Mr. Neil Gaiman. You can check out how things turned out here below.

As it turned out, a movement began with scores of fans, stars of the show such as Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin, hugely popular author Neil Gaiman, and others all throwing massive support behind the professor.

The response was a tad bit overwhelming for those responsible for these unnecessary actions, and, thankfully, they had to back off.

And Firefly fans prove once again that you just can’t take that sky away.

  1. Universities have become the LEAST tolerant places in the country. With this Marxist Messiah doing his level best to destroy the Republic, that’s saying something!
