The University of Texas at San Antonio is facing backlash after a member of their faculty allegedly called the police on a student for having their feet up in class.

According to reports, Anita Moss, a biology professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio, called the police to escort a student out of the lecture hall for having her feet propped up on a chair.

Video posted on Monday, November 12, by Twitter user @ApurvaYRawal shows the events unfold.

“So this happened today in class, a girl had her feet up and the professor called the police after calling our class uncivil,” the caption to the tweet read.

Twitter user went on to describe his point of view of this incident in a series of threaded tweets:

“This professor stopped class entirely and stepped out to call the police just because one student had her feet up on a seat in front of her. Mind you she wasn’t talking or interrupting lecture.

The class before this professor went on a whole tirade about how uncivil we all were because a few students were on their phone or not paying attention, cutting lecture time for the rest of us because her ego was bruised.

As upset as I am that my professor decided to throw a temper tantrum the lecture before an exam and cancel class, I’m even more outraged that she would decide to single out and humiliate a student just to flex her authority in a destructive manner.

I chose to attend this university because of it’s welcoming and inclusive atmosphere, and today’s events genuinely make me concerned for not only my fellow students, but any future roadrunners that may choose to attend this institution in the future.

@UTSA you need to answer for this, because I know we as a university are better than this.”

The woman in the video has since identified herself on Twitter, saying that she was told she “needed to leave or would be escorted out by officers” and that a police report is being followed at this time.

Additionally, the student in the video said “this is just the beginning” when it comes to her response to being wrongfully removed from the class:

Following the circulation of the video, UTSA’s Chief Communications Officer Joe Izbrand issued the following statement via email to mySA.com:

“We are aware of this situation and are working closely with the student and Department of Biology to better understand what happened today,” his statement reads.

According to UTSA’s website, Moss is a senior lecturer specializing in human anatomy and human physiology.
