Film draws protest at N.C. State University

— Protests were held Wednesday before the screening of Tucker Max's film, "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell," at North Carolina State University.

In the movie, Max Tucker, a graduate of the Duke University School of Law, tells stories about his beer adventures and sexual escapades.

Protesters, who gathered outside the university's student center, said the film advocates sexual assault and is disrespectful to women.

In a blogpost Wednesday, Tucker said he is not a rapist and instead suggested those protesting his movie "are more anti-women than he is."
