DAVIS (CBS/AP) — Far-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos has held a rally at the University of California, Davis.
Yiannopoulos stood on a picnic table Saturday at the campus quad and used a megaphone to decry Friday’s cancellation of planned speeches by him and former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli.READ MORE: SF Restaurant Apologizes for Denying Service to Armed, On-Duty Police Officers
Protesters used their own megaphone to periodically interrupt him.
Yiannopoulos then walked through the campus, followed by supporters and a loud group of counter-protesters chanting, “No Milo. No KKK. No fascist U.S.A.”READ MORE: International Travelers Brace For New COVID Testing Requirement
