After a protest broke out last night at the University of California, Berkeley, the University had to cancel far-right frontman Milo Yiannopoulos from giving his speech. That didn’t sit well with president Donald Trump.
The University released a statement that said it wanted to “ensure the safety and security of those attending the event.”
The protest got out of hand when protestors broke property, started fires, built barricades and shot fireworks at police. But even after Berkeley announced that they canceled for the safety and concern of people attending the event, Donald Trump went off on Twitter to protect his far-right groupie and threatened to cut funding to the university.
This is not the first time Yiannopoulos had an event canceled. During his “Dangerous Faggot Tour” an event at U.C. Davis was canceled while other events were disrupted by protesters. During this tour, Yiannopoulos went as far as calling out and humiliating Transgender students, Adelaide Kramer.
“‘Man up’ is a big no no for liberals, intent on eliminating masculinity from our culture. Toxic masculinity and rape culture and all the other idiotic things they like to say in their war against men,” Yiannopoulos said. “I’ll tell you one UW Milwaukee student that doesn’t need to man up, Justine[Adelaide] Kramer.”
According to LGBTQ Nation “He then shared a photo of Adelaide Kramer (Justine is a former name), who was apparently in the audience at the time, on the screen while he proceeded to berate her.”
