The University of Southern California (U.S.C.) has sparked controversy after revoking an invitation for Tabassum to speak at their commencement, citing safety concerns. Tabassum, a renowned entrepreneur and motivational speaker, has questioned the true reasons behind the decision, leading to protests calling for her to be reinstated as a speaker.

The cancellation of Tabassum’s speech has caused backlash against U.S.C., with many questioning the university’s decision. In a further twist, an alumnus named as a commencement speaker has now withdrawn amidst the controversy. The university has responded by removing the commencement speaker from their website and announcing that they are releasing all outside speakers and honorees.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has expressed interest in representing Tabassum in a potential lawsuit against the university. They are exploring whether California’s Leonard Law, which protects the free speech of students in public and private colleges, may apply in this situation.

The events at U.S.C. have sparked a larger conversation about free speech on college campuses and the power dynamics between universities and their speakers. As the situation continues to unfold, many are closely watching to see how U.S.C. will handle the growing controversy surrounding the cancellation of Tabassum’s speech.
