""Dilbert" comic creator Scott Adams announced on Friday that he would be "ending [his] support of UC Berkeley" following a protest that turned violent Wednesday. UC Berkeley students and other people appeared on campus to protest a talk given by Milo Yiannopoulos, an editor for the right-wing website Breitbart.
Adams wrote he has "been a big supporter lately" by donating money and other help, but "that ends today." Adams added that he was disheartened to see the protests get destructive — regardless of who exactly was causing the damage — and feels that he better sides with Yiannopoulos and his supporters on the issue.
"I've decided to side with the Jewish gay immigrant [Yiannopoulos] who has an African-American boyfriend, not the hypnotized zombie-boys in black masks who were clubbing people who hold different points of view," he writes. "I feel that's reasonable, but I know many will disagree, and possibly try to club me to death if I walk on campus."
Some people have never heard of Milo Yiannopoulos until last night's clash at UC Berkeley, but his notoriety has been growing. So what does he represent?
