Melissa Click is an Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Gonzaga University and previously taught at the University of Missouri. In October 2015, she was filmed on a body camera blocking a road during the University of Missouri’s homecoming parade. When asked to move onto the sidewalk by police, she can be seen confronting and yelling, “get your f****** hands off of me!”, at an officer.
In November of the same year, Click was filmed confronting and trying to snatch the camera of a student journalist covering a protest at the University. When the reporter refused to leave, Click was filmed asking protestors for some, “muscle,” t0 physically eject him from the protest site. After she was charged with a misdemeanor for her actions at the protest site, the University elected to fire Click.
