A Cypress College professor, who was seen on Zoom interrupting a student who was calling police officers heroes, has now taken a leave of absence.

The school says in a statement "any efforts to suppress free and respectful expression on our campus will not be tolerated."

The student was making a presentation last week on the term "cancel culture" when the professor interrupted.​

That student told the Southern California News Group he doesn't want the professor fired.

He says she's "a little rude" and has a habit of cutting students off in class but did so to those expressing both liberal and conservative views.
