Rumor has it that had his speech not been canceled due to violent riots, Milo Yiannapoulos was planning to out undocumented students at UC Berkeley.

From SFGate yesterday, before the event was set to take place:
UC Berkeley officials are warning the hosts of a Wednesday night event featuring right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos that his campus speech may be used to target individual students in the country without documentation.
“We are deeply concerned for all students’ safety and ability to pursue their education here at Cal beyond Milo’s speech,” the university’s Office of Student Affairs said in a letter Tuesday to the Berkeley College Republicans, the students hosting the event. “Milo’s event may be used to target individuals, either in the audience or by using their personal information in a way that causes them to become human targets to serve a political agenda.”
So, there’s as yet no concrete proof that the Yiannopoulos would’ve targeted undocumented students, but Chris Hayes doesn’t need proof:
I don't know if this was true, but certainly adds some context if it was. https://t.co/V0ZIwSGqBw

@chrislhayes Where would he get that information?

Who cares? Because why wait until you can verify a story before you help spread it around? Right, Chris?
@chrislhayes I don't know if this is true…but what the hell.

@chrislhayes "I don't know if this is true, but I'll use my position to spread a rumor that it might be as the irresponsible hack I am."

@chrislhayes "I don't know if this was true…." Stop there. Why even comment?

@chrislhayes if you have to start a tweet by saying "I don't know if this is true…" it probably shouldn't be tweeted.

@chrislhayes Why the hell are you passing it along if you don't know its true?
— Chris Lloyd (@chrisrlloyd) February 3, 2017
@chrislhayes if you can't verify it…then why the hell are you tweeting it?

@chrislhayes lol, the media is a joke. Keep spreading news that you don't know is true.

@chrislhayes "I don't know if this was true"…but let me repeat it anyway! Gotta excuse, er, "give context" to the violent riots!
— Jordan Powell (@jordanpowell) February 3, 2017
Seriously. What possible “context” could justify violent riots?
— An Reporter (@ImAnReporter) February 3, 2017
@chrislhayes if it was true what context does it provide to rioting breaking windows starting fires.
— KugrDon (@KugrDon) February 3, 2017
@chrislhayes So? Does that entitle the fascist left to be violent?
— LiberalsREvil (@jtinfo) February 3, 2017
@chrislhayes Context to what? The violence? You are filth.
— RPK (@RPK_) February 3, 2017
Good Lord. What a cluster. Next time, Chris, do yourself a favor and keep your journalism to yourself.
@chrislhayes i don't know if this true but I'll throw it out there anyway because it helps the narrative…..that is why you fail
