A Kent State University professor accused of having ties to ISIS denied supporting terrorism and dismissed the complaints as absurd.

“I’ve never broken the law. I support no violence or violent organizations,” history professor Julio Pino told the Akron Beacon Journal. “One man or one woman’s interpretation of events can be very different from another’s. As they say, ‘Haters gonna hate.’ Truth always prevails, and truth will prevail in this case.”

Pino said he believed the FBI is investigating him because of his outspoken positions on the Middle East.

“I can only imagine, given my past record at Kent State dealing with controversial issues about the Middle East, some people may be favorable or unfavorable,” he said. “Rumors start, and that’s the only thing I can think would draw attention from a government agency.”

The FBI confirmed that the professor is under investigation but declined to elaborate.

A university spokesperson said the university is fully cooperating.
