There has been a lot of attention drawn to conservative author and editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire Ben Shapiro‘s upcoming speaking event at UC Berkeley, all of it due to the on-campus opposition.
Late on Saturday, the Los Angeles Times published an article with the headline: “Berkeley braces for right-wing talk show host Ben Shapiro’s visit.”
But when the paper shared the article on its Twitter page, it caught fire among conservatives, specifically because Berkeley apparently has to “brace” for Shapiro.

He’s going there to give a speech and they treat it like an incoming meteor. Sad that we have to “brace” for words these days. https://t.co/fFXOCc0f1S
