Melissa Click was an Assistant Professor of Journalism at University of Missouri.
[+] She is 45 years old.
Melissa earned her Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Her research interests include popular culture texts and audiences.
She is currently writing about 50 Shades of Grey, Lady Gaga's social media strategies, male fans of pop musicians, and class in reality television programming.
In January 2016, Melissa was charged with assault for obstructing student reporter Tim Tai during campus demonstrations.
Following the controversy, in addition to receiving multiple death threats, the Missouri State Legislature recently filed a petition requesting her immediate removal.
Click was also caught in another video cursing at a cop during student protests.
The President of the University said he's appalled.
However, Click said she was simply protecting student protestors in that incident.
(wait who's side is she on?!!) 
Click's research predominantly encompasses the use of femininity and women in erotic novels and the use of feminity to expand social memes.
