Free Speech or Hate Speech?

Far-right author and controversial commentator Milo Yiannopoulos will not speak at LSU next month after failing to acquire proper insurance for the event, organizers said.

The student group LSU College Republicans apologized on Twitter on Tuesday evening, saying that ticket sales will be refunded.

Yiannopoulos had been scheduled to speak Wednesday evening at the LSU Union Theater. Organizers said it was the speaker's team's obligation to secure required insurance.

It would've been his second appearance on LSU's campus. His first appearance in September 2016, part of his "Dangerous F***ot" tour, touched on issues of free speech on campus.

Yiannopoulos, dressed in drag to deliver his speech, made critical remarks on the body positivity movement, his event livestream titled "Fat Shaming Works." The event drew more than 300 people to buy tickets.

His visit to LSU was met with controversy, as some students attended protests in lieu of attending the event. Protesters also attempted to buy out tickets to the event, but were rerouted to a fake event website.

In early 2017, Yiannopoulos resigned from Breitbart News after making comments about sexual relationships between boys and men.
