11 Arrested After Protesting Conservative Speaker at NYU

Vice News co-founder Gavin McInnes was giving a talk at the school.

Gavin McInnes, a comedian and commentator, was giving a talk organized by the NYU College Republicans when protesters interrupted the event at the school's Rosenthal Pavilion.

A group called the NYU Anti-Fascists was involved in protesting against the speaker, who is a founder of Proud Boys, an online organization advocating for "Western chauvinism."

A statement from the NYU College Republicans said they were “disappointed that many students on this campus are so disrespectful when it comes to hearing opposing speakers.”
