Miami Professor Resigned For Porn Bookmark


A viral video shows a University of Miami professor accidentally reveal a porn bookmark on the browser he was sharing with students during a Zoom class.

The business school lecturer John Peng Zhang has left the university after the student newspaper, "The Miami Hurricane", broke the news.

"The University of Miami aggressively investigates all complaints of inappropriate behavior or sexual harassment," according to a school statement. "After receiving a complaint through the University's ethics hotline, the incident was investigated by the Office of the Provost, Title IX investigator and Miami Herbert Business School. The University can confirm that John Peng Zhang resigned and is no longer employed at the University of Miami."

Because of the pandemic the university has been conducting all classes remotely.

Several students in the business analytics class noticed that the instructor's browser was visible during the Zoom meeting, showing a bookmark for "Busty College girl fu@#$," .

One student posted a TikTok of it, and it went viral before he took it down.

"I felt bad about the attention it was getting," the student said. "I didn't want him to lose his job. ... I thought he would be fine."

Zhang's online résumé shows he's been a business school lecturer at the Coral Gables, Florida, campus since August after stints at the University of Oregon and Florida International University.
