As Twitchy reported Wednesday, the University of California, Berkeley, cancelled a scheduled speech by Ann Coulter claiming that the school, despite being one massive safe space, was unable to find a “safe” venue to host her appearance.

The Washington Times is reporting that Berkeley has reversed its decision and rescheduled Coulter’s appearance, having turned over every snowflake on campus and stumbling on a “protected venue” suitable for the event.

Piers Morgan was thrilled by the news, having written a column in which he threatened to escort Coulter, “a woman whose opinions I love to hate,” to the stage, armed with his trusty musket if necessary. (OK, not really, but his piece is worth a read.)

Victor Morton of the Washington Times reports:

A day after the University of California cancelled her planned speech over security fears, the school reversed itself and found a “protected venue” for the event.

The university moved the date of the speech from April 27 to May 2, and did not disclose the new location at a Thursday press conference announcing its reversal.

University spokesman Dan Mogulof told reporters that the speech would take a place at a campus site that Chancellor Nicholas Dirks said would be disclosed at a later time.

Just as a reminder, this is an Ann Coulter speech we’re talking about. Then again, Milo Yiannopoulos didn’t even take the stage at UC Berkeley back in February and protests erupted into a full-blown riot anyway.

That’s something everyone can agree on at this point.

Although the school has rescheduled Coulter’s speech for May 2, Coulter insists she’ll be there to speak April 27 as stated in the contract.
