'Gun Girl' Kaitlin Bennett showed up at Rutgers University, and someone called the cops - 2019-05-02
The right-wing commentator known as "Kent State Gun Girl" tried filming at Rutgers University earlier this week. But she was soon met with a crowd of students who said she was only there to spread hate.
Kaitlin Bennett, who went viral after she posted a photo wearing an AR-10 with her graduation cap on Kent State's campus, said she was recording a segment about student loan debt for far-right media outlet InfoWars, a website known for posting hoaxes and conspiracy theories. She was trying to film in a space newly dedicated to Class of 1919 alumnus Paul Robeson, a black All-American athlete, entertainer and political activist for civil rights and social justice.
"This is the only space dedicated to the commemoration and celebration of Paul Robeson, and y'all picked this spot?" one woman repeats over and over on a video Bennett posted to InfoWars.
