He wasn't PC enough for Princeton.
A vicious campaign to end the unblemished 10-year career of a popular but often politically incorrect Princeton teacher left him so despondent that he took his own life, brokenhearted pals said yesterday.
Spanish teacher Antonio Calvo, 45 -- who stabbed himself to death in his Chelsea apartment on April 12 -- believed at least two graduate students and another lecturer were behind a poisonous political maneuver that robbed him of a contract renewal, two friends told The Post.
Calvo once raised his voice in a meeting with a female graduate student, who interpreted the confrontation as "aggressive behavior," the pal said.
Another incident apparently involved a grad student whom Calvo chided, "You're spending too much time touching your balls. Why don't you go to work?"
"It was interpreted as sexual harassment, but it's a common expression in Spanish," the pal said.
