Students at Pennsylvania State University are in an uproar after thousands of dollars in student fees were allocated for a campus event later this month featuring Gavin McInnes, founder of the Proud Boys street gang.

The Oct. 24 event, titled "Stand Back & Stand By," will feature McInnes and far-right media figure Alex Stein for a comedy hour in which the pair will riff on right-wing grievances such as "political correctness, gender roles, and immigration," according to a pitch to sponsor the event from campus conservative organization Uncensored America.
