BREAKING – Ann Coulter Backs Out of Berkeley Free Speech Week

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the much hyped “Berkeley Free Speech Week”, set to start this upcoming Monday, has hit a number of roadblocks and now is most likely not going to take place.

Ann Coulter just told the Associated Press that she will not be showing up to Berkeley free speech week.

Organizers knew that the event would not actually happen as scheduled. This information was not shared with the public and only a select few knew about it. Rather than hold the event as it was previously advertised, a Saturday press conference is reported to happen.

NBC reports:

Confusion continues to surround Free Speech Week at UC Berkeley two days before events are scheduled to kick off.

While some media are reporting that the Berkeley Patriot, the student organization hosting the four-day conservative political event, have called it off, British right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, one of the event headliners, posted on Facebook that it’s going on.

The university plans to spend a million dollars on security.

Uncertainty continues to loom over the event’s speakers, as well as the venues, with a number of “unconfirmed speakers” currently listed on the roster, the highlights of which include former White House chief strategist Bannon, and controversial political commentator Ann Coulter. Coulter told the Associated Press Friday she’s not coming.

Story developing. TGP will update as more information becomes available.
