A reader of TISG sent us a video of Amos Yee inviting guests to attend his talk at Harvard today. In the video, Yee gloats about how impressed Harvard was with his work on taking on the government and for “humping the Quran,” the holy book of Islam.
Yee was planning for a 90min Q&A session and was making arrangement to air his speech live.
He was quite certain that Hardvard, given its stance on free speech will not succumb to pressure online to cancel his talk. He challenged his haters to do what they can.
In a twitter post, Harvard College Open Campus Initiative posted the following tweet to cancel the event. No specific reason was given.
Our upcoming event with Amos Yee has been cancelled. Our apologies to those who were planning to attend.
