Conservative Comedian and talk show host Steven Crowder found himself in a little trouble after one of his famous “change my mind” segments got so ugly, the university itself made a statement denouncing him. On Monday, Crowder attended TCU (Texas Christian University) to film a segment for his show called “Rape Culture Is a Myth, Change My Mind”. In an attempt to debunk the narrative that rape is institutionalized in America and college campuses, things got ugly when multiple students verbally attacked the comedian and demanded police officers throw him off of campus. While no arrests were made and the segment went on as planned, TCU later issued a statement saying while the comedian’s first amendment rights are protected, his views are not welcome on campus.
Today, Steven Crowder chose to challenge our students on a public sidewalk in front of the university. While the Constitution gives him the right to express his views, the sentiments he expressed do not align with TCU’s values.
His views adversely affected many members of our campus community. The health and safety of the Horned Frog Family is of utmost importance and we encourage individuals to contact campus resources for support.
“For some of the members of our community, it was a day of pain and anguish,” Cavins-Tull said. “For others, a day of disappointment that the university failed to remove the source of their pain from the public sidewalk. I want to acknowledge the pain that I saw yesterday and the disappointment that I heard. I also want to acknowledge those who used their voices to oppose to Mr. Crowder and even to criticize the University. Speech is protected for you, too.”
Crowder has since posted the full segment on his Youtube page along with short clips of his exchange with students on campus.
