Milo Yiannopoulos, the alt-right-friendly media figure and Breitbart tech editor who is permanently banned from Twitter, was scheduled to speak at the University of California-Davis on Friday, but student-protesters mobbed the scene, forcing event organizers to cancel his appearance.Leftists are the fascists they decry.
Given the unruly state of the protesters, university officials informed Yiannopoulos's hosts, the Davis College Republicans, that they could no longer guarantee anyone's safety. This prompted the CRs to cancel the event before Yiannopoulos had a chance to speak.
Martin Shkreli was supposed to speak as well, but because of the actions of irate students, his lecture did not take place, either.
The university initially remained committed to letting the event go forward, despite the administration's fervent opposition to Yiannopoulos's message. But fights broke out, according to local news reporters. Someone even poured hot coffee on a photojournalist.
Update, 1/16/17: Milo went to UC Davis on Saturday, stating that the College Republicans only canceled his talk because the administration said the CR's would be responsible for any damage done by protesters. View video here if you cannot below.
