Candace Owens was invited by the University of Pennsylvania College Republicans to speak at an event on Monday, April 15th.
The event is highly opposed by left wing organizations and college students. A student was seen stapling a poster over another poster advertising the event on the college.
Just 3 days before our @RealCandaceO event with @upennGOP , people are trying to erase a woman of color from a historically white space. Check your white privilege, Groovy Gabe! pic.twitter.com/MOkh7wv80U

When the event was announced, a Philadelphia ANTIFA group took to twitter to speak out against Candace Owens.
Hitler admiring, far-right, anti-immigrant fear monger Candace Owens brings her outrageously wrong and backwards ‘ideology’ to UPenn on Monday, for real y’all are an Ivy League School? Y’all should have that revoked. https://t.co/NwvDZ5yBnO

A specific ANTIFA member even told people to throw coyote urine on her, saying ” I’m not saying anyone should throw eggs at her for speaking but Walmart does sell Coyote Urine in a bottle and balloons, some assembly required.”
Candace Owens responded on twitter to what was happening, telling ANTIFA that they would not stop her from going to the event.
The year is not 1960 and I am not Ruby Bridges.
Your threats of violence do not scare me. I will be walking through the front door of UPENN today with my head held high.
You racist white Democrats didn’t win back then—and you won’t win now. https://t.co/mST9EQaAq6
