The Las Vegas man behind a calendar featuring shirtless returned Mormon missionaries has had his diploma yanked by the Mormon-owned Brigham Young University.
Chad Hardy says he finished his last four units for graduation in June. On Aug. 15, he crossed the stage with other graduates during ceremonies at the Provo school.
In between, he was excommunicated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
A letter from BYU’s director of student academic and advisement services says Hardy’s graduation application is on “hold” and that he can reapply if he is “reinstated as a member of the church in good standing.”
