Columbia Students Diss "LOST" Star Matthew Fox
MARCH 7, 2007: Columbia University announced on Monday that ABC's "LOST" star Matthew Fox, who graduated CC’89 with a B.A. in economics and played wide receiver on the Lions’ varsity football team, would be serving as Class Day speaker on May 15, unleashing the anger of a bunch of whiny, pretentious and snobbish Columbia students and alumni.
An editor for Columbia University's undergrad magazine summoned peers to protest the decision in his "bwog": "...we want a Class Day speaker that has accomplished more than being hot and lucking into [two popular TV shows]."
Citing the likes of Anna Paquin, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Brian De Palma as more esteemed alumni, the editor says, "Fox's invitation to speak should be rescinded."
In response, the Ivy League students branded Fox a "C-list TV actor"; the decision to enlist him "repulsive", "ridiculous" and "disgusting" and added a number of insults and expletives.
