Penn State University canceled a speaking event Monday night with Gavin McInnes, founder of the far-right group the Proud Boys, following massive backlash and student-led protests. The event was sponsored by the conservative student organization Uncensored America and also featured right-wing BlazeTV host Alex Stein. Penn State officials accused peaceful protesters of obstruction and censorship but then claimed to not support McInnes and Stein’s views. The event was canceled after Proud Boys members used pepper spray to attack counterprotesters and journalists.
