Dr. Deandre Poole, the professor at the center of Florida Atlantic University’s “Jesus stomp” controversy, has been put on administrative leave following nationwide outrage.

The chaos started after student Ryan Rotela complained over an exercise during which Poole apparently told students to write “JESUS” on a sheet of paper, throw it on the floor and then stomp on it.

According to WBSF-TV, Poole’s removal from the classroom was for safety reasons, considering the widespread anger that the story sparked. FAU responded to the incident via an official statement on Friday.

“As a result of the reaction to a recent exercise in Dr. Poole’s intercultural communications class, the instructor’s personal safety has been compromised,” a statement from the university read, according to the Sun Sentinel. “In addition, this decision will prevent further disruption to the day-to-day operations of Florida Atlantic University.”
