This past week Paul Roof was let go from his roll as a professor at Charleston Southern University. He was let go because his image appeared on a beer can from Holy City Brewery. The image is of his styled beard from the 2013 National Beard Competition. Paul does not own the image and is not collecting royalties for the use on the can.
Paul Roof is an integral part to the bearding community and has raised thousands of dollars for charity and inspired many men to grow their facial hair. He is the founder of the Holy City Beard & Mustache Society which puts on events for charity and supports other local beard clubs.
Let's raise awareness for how improperly CSU has handled this situation and support Paul and his efforts. Beard on!
