(Newser) – A New Jersey professor claims he was suspended over an online photo containing a quote from Game of Thrones that he says a school official perceived as a threat. Francis Schmidt is an art instructor at Bergen Community College. He says he was suspended for eight days after posting a photo in January of his 7-year-old daughter wearing a T-shirt with a quote from the HBO show that read: "I will take what is mine with fire and blood." Schmidt tells the Record that school officials questioned whether the reference was meant as a threat against a dean; the school has been embroiled in labor negotiations.
