An event that was scheduled to take place on Monday 13th of November has been cancelled by the organisers and no reason has been given. The event was entitled “Jailed for Dissent,” and his claim to fame was to upload a rather distasteful video during the mourning period of late Lee Kuan Yew.
Singapore’s Ambassador-at-large, Mr Bilahari Kausikan once said that “Nobody outside Singapore cares about “obscure” Yee.” Kausikan was proven wrong when Harvard invited Yee. On second thoughts, perhaps not!
In a twitter post, Harvard College Open Campus Initiative posted the following tweet to cancel the event.
Our upcoming event with Amos Yee has been cancelled. Our apologies to those who were planning to attend.

Looks like Amos Yee has jumped on a roller-coaster for a ride.
