Self-proclaimed professional troll Alex Stein called a female Penn State student who spat on him a ‘Penn State cutie’ after a ‘comedy event’ featuring him and Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes was canceled at the school. 

Officials at Penn State were forced to cancel the event at the eleventh hour after Stein and McInnes attracted an army of protesters who eventually forced the provocateurs to flee the scene on Monday night. 

In a brief statement, Penn State officials said: ‘Due to the threat of escalating violence associated with tonight’s event, Penn State University Police determined that it was necessary to cancel the speaking event in the interest of campus safety.’ 

It had been due to take place at 8:00 pm on Monday night. The cancelation was announced around an hour beforehand. 

The event was hosted by Uncensored America, a free-speech group based at Penn State. Since the evening was announced, there had been calls from protesters to cancel it. Those calls went unheeded by school officials.

In the shocking video, Stein can be heard telling the protester: ‘You’re my favorite’ repeatedly.  The protester tells him: ‘You are the reason that I feel unsafe in this town! You are the f***ing reason that we’re all here today! You are the reason people feel unsafe in this country. I f***ing hate you!’

Stein responds with: ‘I love you. I think you’re a nice woman.’ That prompts the student to spit on Stein. He yells down the camera: ‘Woah, she spit on me!’ He tells here: ‘I like that fetish’ and ‘That turns me on.’ 

He later tweeted: ‘Penn State Shut Down My Speech on Campus Today! Free Speech Doesn’t Exist for Conservatives!’ Stein and McInnes were recorded in a video posted by Penn State’s Collegian newspaper hurrying into a waiting car with a police escort. 

Stein is the host of Conspiracy Castle on the little-watched BlazeTV.  Prior to Monday’s events, he was best known for sexually harassing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the steps of the Capitol, telling her that she was his ‘favorite big booty Latina.’

When the announcement came through that the event was not going ahead, the protesters broke out in cheers. There has been no official announcement regarding how many, if any, arrests were made. 

Photos from the scene showed student demonstrators and local law enforcement, many on horseback, surrounding the Thomas Building, where the event was scheduled to take place. 

Multiple reports suggested that supporters of McInnes and Stein were present in the form of the Proud Boys, the neo-fascist, politically violent, organization. 

Protesters shouted slogans such as: ‘We are not afraid of the Proud Boys.’ Another group could be seen holding banner reading: ‘White Supremacists Off Our Campus.’ 

Some of the activists alleged that they had been pepper sprayed by Proud Boys members. Vice News’ Tess Owen tweeted: ‘Fascists in all black just pepper sprayed a bunch of protesters (and media).’ In addition to founding the Proud Boys, McInnes was also one of the founders of Vice Media.

Monday’s event was titled Stand Back & Stand By, a reference to the not-so subtly coded message given by ex-President Donald Trump to the Proud Boys during a presidential debate in 2020.

The group has been in the crosshairs of the Department of Justice due to members alleged roles in the January 6th Capitol riot. Despite founding the group, McInnes has distanced himself from the group in recent times. 

On October 11, a statement from the school said that it was Uncensored America’s ‘undeniable constitutional right to sponsor this presentation on our campus’ despite disagreeing with the sentiments expressed by Stein and McInnes. 

Following the event’s cancelation, the Penn State statement read: ‘The University has been clear that the views and speech of the two speakers at tonight’s student-organization-hosted event are abhorrent and do not align with the values of Penn State.’

It went on: ‘We have encouraged peaceful protest, and, while protest is an acceptable means of expression, it becomes unacceptable when it obstructs the basic exchange of ideas. Such obstruction is a form of censorship, no matter who initiates it or for what reasons.’

‘The University expects that people engaging in expressive activity will demonstrate civility, concern for the safety of persons and property, respect for University activities and for those who may disagree with their message, and will comply with University rules,’ the press release added.

It concluded: ‘The climate in our nation has been polarized for quite some time. On campuses across the country, violence is proliferating and individuals are being intimidated and even harmed. This must stop.’
