I’m not a fan of cancel culture, but I don’t think anyone needs to be “punished” for their objections. Still, the film should have been shown, and the administration should have supported the professor. Perhaps if the professor had the foresight to provide some context before screening the film — even though the focus of the lesson was the musical score — the outrage might have been avoided or at least mitigated. A lesson, perhaps, for educators to be aware of potential objections and to address them before they surface.
