A writing professor at Michigan State, William Penn, was fired this week after the video below was posted on social media. In it, he allegedly rants about Republicans and "closet racists"

Among other things, Professor Penn said:

"If you go to the Republican convention in Florida, you see all of the old Republicans with the dead skin cells washing off them," the professor is heard saying in the video. "They are cheap. They don't want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could."

An MSU spokesman says that the university is "aware of the situation and is reviewing it."
