Actor Rob Schneider offered a scenery-chewing response to the cancelation of Ann Coulter’s speech at the University of California, Berkeley.
Coulter agreed to call off the event scheduled for Thursday after a dispute with university officials, who were worried about violent protests and campus safety, and complained that two conservative groups that had invited her had not offered enough support.
Schneider, a former Saturday Night Live cast member and star of “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” accused the university of violating Coulter’s rights, reported Mediaite.

Politics and free speech were apparently on the actor’s mind.
Freedom of thought,speech,conscience & informed consent to medical risk taking. There’s no greater calling for Americans in the 21st Century# p #8_11 # ad skipped = true #
