CHARLESTON, SC (June 3, 2014) – An associate professor at Charleston Southern University was fired Friday after his image appeared on a beer can.
Paul Roof says school officials told him the image was “not representative of a Christian environment.”
The school is a Christian University, and it is affiliated with the SC Baptist convention.
Roof had his picture taken at a beard and mustache competition, and he didn’t know that it would be used on a beer can.
“My image and likeness, which I do not own, that I’ve never received compensation for and it was a surprise for me that it was put on a beer can by Holy City Brewing.”
Roof believes he was unfairly fired and says his life has been “an emotional roller coaster” ever since.
No word from the university or the brewing company on Roof’s claims.
