Coulter likely to cancel Berkeley appearance: ‘It’s a sad day for free speech’

Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter says she will likely cancel her Thursday appearance at the University of California, Berkeley, over persistent security concerns.

Coulter told The New York Times on Wednesday that she felt like she was left without adequate support of law enforcement officials who said that her safety cannot be guaranteed at the event, which was relocated after protests.

“It’s a sad day for free speech,” she told The Times.
