At a time when Black people and others are marching in opposition to police brutality and discrimination in astounding numbers, the president’s daughter bemoaned “cancel culture” and “viewpoint discrimination” for the cancellation of her planned virtual commencement address to a Kansas technical school.

“Our nation’s campuses should be bastions of free speech,” Ivanka Trump tweeted on Friday night. “Cancel culture and viewpoint discrimination are antithetical to academia. Listening to one another is important now more than ever!”

She was scheduled to virtually address the graduates of WSU Tech, but on the same day she was announced as speaker, the presidents of WSU Tech and Wichita State University said in a joint statement that they decided to “refocus” their commencement plans and put the spotlight “more centrally on students” after backlash from the community.
