Two arrests were made for vandalism.
“Aside from these pepper spray reports, no major physical injuries were reported and no one requested treatment for injuries,” UC Davis officials said in a statement.
Prior to Kirk’s event on Tuesday, the Sacramento Bee condemned UC Davis for allowing the activist on campus — and accused Kirk of being a “fascist” who promoted anti-transgender rhetoric.
Following the scathing op-ed, the university issued a statement ahead of Kirk’s visit that read, “UC Davis stands with our transgender and non-binary Aggies in opposition to this hateful and divisive messaging.”
