Jim Harbaugh supports controversial 'American Sniper' showing at Michigan
by Des Bieler
The University Michigan had planned to show the film "American Sniper" at a Friday campus event. However, a petition drive led by students, at least some of whom were Muslim or Arab, caused the school on Tuesday to swap that movie out for a screening of "Paddington."
However, at least one prominent member of the Michigan faculty took to Twitter Wednesday to express support for the Iraq War movie.
It's unclear if Jim Harbaugh's very public stance swayed members of Michigan's administration. Certainly, the football coach's tweet came amid much criticism of the school's decision to change films.
