A professor at a taxpayer-funded college in New York City was caught on video hurling obscenities at student volunteers presenting a pro-life display, trashing their brochures and other information before throwing and pushing items off the table.
Shellyne Rodriguez, an adjunct professor, told the pro-life students they were "triggering" her students by tabling inside Hunter College in Manhattan earlier this month, according to The New York Post.
A video of the incident from May 2 was posted to Twitter on May 17 by Students for Life of America with the caption: "PROFESSOR GONE WILD: Pro-abortion professor Shellyne Rodriquez curses at pro-life students and vandalizes table at Hunter College."

At the start of the 29-second video that has now gone viral, a male student standing behind the table tells Rodriquez they are educating.
"You're not educating 'expletive.' This is 'expletive' propaganda," the art professor replied to the students. "What are you going to do, like, anti-trans next?"
The male student calmly responds, "I mean no. We're talking about abortion."
"This is 'expletive,' this is violent," Rodriguez said. "You're triggering my students."
The male student appears to try to de-escalate the situation telling the professor, "I'm sorry about that."
"No, you're not, because you can't even have a 'expletive' baby. So you don't even know what that is. Get this 'expletive' the 'expletive' out of here," the professor angrily responded and then attempted to push items off the student's table. "'Expletive' this 'expletive'" before walking out of frame, the video showed.
The short video of the exchange has received more than 434,000 views with many Twitter users calling for Rodriguez to be fired or resign.
Hunter College is a public college that is part of The City University of New York (CUNY).
