The University of Cambridge revoked a visiting fellowship for psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson, prompting a student to pen a New York Times op-ed in support of Peterson.

The U.K. university rescinded the visiting research fellowship for the Canadian after a backlash from students. Peterson blasted the university for making the announcement last month via Twitter.

"It was unprofessional in a way that is almost incomprehensible to me. I can't believe how it was handled," he told London's Sunday Times magazine.

Speaking on "Fox & Friends," Air Force veteran and Cambridge PhD student Rob Henderson said he was "disappointed" with the decision, so he decided to share his thoughts with the New York Times. 

Henderson, who graduated from Yale, said he was born into poverty to a drug-addicted mother in Los Angeles and was in and out of foster care as a child. He said he later joined the Air Force and "found a path to success."

"Jordan Peterson just has a way of describing the struggles of life in a way that makes it all sound worth it," he said, adding he likes the message Peterson communicates to young people about personal responsibility. 

Henderson said Peterson doesn't like identity politics and pushes back against those who "make excuses" for themselves. 

"We have political figures visit the campus all the time, but when one of those figures is someone they oppose, then they're willing to disinvite them," he lamented, adding that a "vocal minority" swayed university officials in this case.
