The Harvard College Open Campus Initiative (HCOCI) announced online that it has cancelled a talk by Singapore’s most infamous teenager Amos Yee.
Our upcoming event with Amos Yee has been cancelled. Our apologies to those who were planning to attend.

This comes less than two days after the event was publicised.
No reasons given
The event was scheduled to take place on Nov. 13, 6pm (US eastern time), and Yee was proud enough to announce it on his YouTube channel.
No reasons were given for the cancellation but the orginal Facebook post on the event is now no longer available.
The HCOCI is a student-run organisation at Harvard College that was established last November.
According to their Facebook bio, they are “advocates of free and open expression”.
Yee was granted US asylum in September this year, and this would have been his first public talk.
He recently revealed that he has been banned by Facebook for 30 days for violating the social media platform’s guidelines.
