LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By: Elias J. Atienza
Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, has ended his support for UC Berkeley where he received his MBA in 1986. He announced on Friday that he would no longer be supporting UC Berkeley for his own safety and because of Milo Yiannopoulos, whose speech was canceled due to riots.
Speaking of Hitler, I’m ending my support of UC Berkeley, where I got my MBA years ago. I have been a big supporter lately, with both my time and money, but that ends today,” Adams wrote. “I wish them well, but I wouldn’t feel safe or welcome on the campus. A Berkeley professor made that clear to me recently. He seems smart, so I’ll take his word for it.”
Adams has been highly critical of the Berkeley riots and the way the administration responded to it. He tweeted:

“I’ve decided to side with the Jewish gay immigrant who has an African-American boyfriend, not the hypnotized zombie-boys in black masks who were clubbing people who hold different points of view,” Adams wrote. “I feel that’s reasonable, but I know many will disagree, and possibly try to club me to death if I walk on campus.”
