Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos’ scheduled speech at Washington State University-Pullman tonight has been canceled, the WSU College Republicans announced on their Facebook page.

The club said the cancellation is due to the continued closure of Interstate 90 and “unsafe conditions on all highways leading to Pullman.”

According to their Facebook, they will reschedule another event soon.

“Don’t worry – we will be coming up with a suitably triggering replacement.”
