WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The movie "Let's Be Cops" was at the top of the box office last weekend, but Purdue University does not seem to be a fan.
Purdue says it was approached by 20th Century Fox to use Purdue's logos and image as a background for Jake Johnson's character, but the university turned it down.
Despite this rejection, Johnson's character, "Ryan," can still be seen wearing a Purdue alumni shirt. The movie has been panned by critics, and Purdue.
Purdue University spokeswoman Liz Evans said Purdue turned down the publicity because "it did not want to become formally involved with the film given its understanding of the project at the time."
At this point, there are no details on whether Purdue will take legal action, as the film did not expressly mention Purdue by name and uses vague lettering to represent the university.
