NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Eleven people were arrested when protests erupted at New York University on Thursday night.

Students gathered to demonstrate against a speech being delivered by Vice Media co-founder and conservative actor Gavin McInnes.

The speech, which was cut short, was organized by the NYU College Republicans.

Eight men and three women face multiple charges include disorderly misconduct, criminal mischief and resisting arrest.

The protests came one night after crowds rallied on UC Berkley’s campus against an appearance by another right-wing figure, Milo Yiannopoulos.

  1. FAKE NEWS. There was a protest, but not over McIniss’ speech. It was a protest over his audacity to be a conservative and actually breathe the air at NYU. How dare he.

  2. Candace Zuno says:

    Funding cuts should be implemented immediately, and indefinitely for universities as well as sanctuary cities!

  3. More lib thugs shutting down free speech
