Does not compute. Geysi Villa Nova Arruda, 20, a student at the Universidade Bandeirante (Uniban) in Brazil, was expelled for “flagrant disrespect of ethical principles, academic dignity and morality,” according to the school. A massive uproar occurred after Arruda wore a mid-length red dress to class, which sparked violent protests at the university. Armed guards had to escort Arruda off the campus while students called her a “whore.” Wait, once again, we’re talking about Brazil, right? Was it “Opposite Day” or something? [Yahoo!/Reuters]
