Officials at UC Berkeley on Thursday reversed their decision to cancel next week’s speech by conservative commentator Ann Coulter and rescheduled it on May 2, the Gateway Pundit reports.
UC Berkeley administrators on Wednesday postponed Coulter’s speech originally scheduled on April 27 citing safety concerns. The university said they wanted more time to find a “suitable venue” for the event.
In response to the cancellation, Coulter ranted in a series of tweets Thursday, where she criticized UC Berkeley over adding “burdensome” conditions to her appearance.
Coulter said that by rescheduling her speech on May 2, there will be no classes and fewer students in attendance because it would coincide with a reading period prior to the final exams.
The firebrand journalist vowed to continue with her speech in Berkeley regardless the university permits or not.
“I’m speaking at Berkeley on April 27, as I was invited to do and have a contract to do,” Coulter said on Twitter.
