Obviously Flawless Professor Fat Shames PhD Applicants

Geoffrey Miller, professor at NYU, tweeted an encouraging message to all you seekers of higher learning who might be carrying a few extra pizza pounds:

Obviously that tweet has resulted in ongoing “WTF??”, despite the fact that Professor Fathater has deleted the tweet and even made public statements:

My sincere apologies to all for that idiotic, impulsive, and badly judged tweet. It does not reflect my true views, values, or standards.

Obviously my previous tweet does not represent the selection policies of any university, or my own selection criteria.

Oh, ok, let’s all forget it then! Or how about the selection policies for professors get changed to forbid them from discussing students?
