Twelve people were left dead after two gunmen shot several staff members of Charlie Hebdo, a French magazine, but according to a humanities professor, the attack was warranted as the journalists belonged to "a newspaper devoted to hate speech."
Adam Kotsko, an assistant professor at Shimer College, a private liberal arts school in Chicago, tweeted that the terrorist attack was not surprising due to the magazine's satirical and oftentimes controversial content.
"It's no more surprising that someone would attack a newspaper devoted to hate speech than someone would beat up Westboro pastors," Kotsko said in a tweet which has since been deleted.
The professor later apologized on Twitter, "saying he chose 'the wrong example to make a general point'," according to Campus Reform.
