Protesters Disrupt TPUSA Event Featuring Kyle Rittenhouse at University of Memphis

Outraged protesters disrupted a Turning Point USA (TPUSA) event featuring Kyle Rittenhouse at the University of Memphis on Wednesday night. TPUSA had invited Rittenhouse to speak about the Second Amendment and self-defense, but the event quickly spiraled into chaos with disruptions and attendees being chased off campus.

TPUSA has accused the university of taking unprecedented actions to undermine the event, including changing seating arrangements on the day of the event. Despite being promised control of 50 seats, organizers were restricted to only a single row of eight seats. TPUSA alleges that school administrators leaked new ticketing information to protesters to fill up seats for a walk-out.

Before the event, some students had urged others to email school administrators to cancel Rittenhouse’s appearance. Protesters chanted “No justice, no peace” and even followed attendees to their cars in a parking garage.

Rittenhouse, who was found not guilty on five charges related to a shooting incident in Kenosha in 2020, stated that it was a “great event” with “interesting people to say the least.” He added that he was not booed off stage due to a hard cut-off time for the event’s conclusion.

The University of Memphis did not immediately respond to requests for comment. It is worth noting that both deceased individuals in the Kenosha incident had previous criminal records.
