Concordia distances itself from professor after controversial comments


A professor from Concordia University recently gained attention online after reportedly calling the French Quebec accent an “affront to human dignity” during a podcast. Gad Saad made the remarks during his appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast and later explained that his remarks were hyperbolic and that he often uses the phrase as a joke. Concordia has distanced itself from Saad’s comments, noting that these are individual remarks that reflect beliefs not shared by the university.
