Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J., is investigating an incident in which a student-run satirical newspaper published an article called "What About the Good Things Hitler Did?" while using a real student's name and photograph, MyFoxNY reports.
That student, Aaron Marcus, is Jewish and said he can't believe the paper would do something like that.
"To say anything praiseworthy of someone like Hitler, and to have people actually believe it was coming from me even in a satirical manner is just really painful for me and my family," Marcus told MyFoxNY.
The article was in the student-funded Daily Medium newspaper. The article included lines like "give Hitler a little thanks."
"I'm a firm believer in freedom of speech, but I'm not a firm believer in impersonation and liable," Marcus told MyFoxNY.
Marcus says his relatives were survivors of the Holocaust and has previously spoken out about what he has called an anti-Semitic environment on campus.
Rutgers' President, Richard McCormick issued a statement saying, "No individual student should be subject to such a vicious, provocative and hurtful piece, regardless of whether First Amendment protections apple to such expression."
