(Newser) – A 20-year-old woman was expelled from a Brazilian university and accused of violating "ethical principles and academic dignity and morality" after wearing a short pink dress to class, the AP reports. Her expulsion comes a month after she was escorted off campus amid the heckling and cursing of her classmates in an incident caught on YouTube. To add insult to injury, the private college she attends has published ads accusing her of wearing "inadequate clothing'' that was ''incompatible with the university environment."
