Ann Coulter said she would no longer be hosting her event on campus April 27, calling it “a sad day for free speech.”
Coulter canceled her event because she lost the support of the Young America’s Foundation, Berkeley College Republicans and BridgeUSA. YAF, a conservative group that was partially funding the event, pulled its involvement in the event Tuesday because of safety concerns.
BCR and BridgeUSA invited Coulter to speak April 27. The campus postponed her event to September on April 19, but then extended an invitation for her to speak on May 2 instead of April 27. Coulter refused to speak May 2, and had publicly stated she intended to speak on campus on April 27.
The campus has not heard from Coulter directly, according to campus spokesperson Dan Mogulof.
