‘Hurricane Ben!’ Twitter Mocks LA Times Tweet Saying Berkeley ‘Braces’ For Ben Shapiro Speech

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.

Berkeley is scheduled to brace “Hurricane Ben” on Thursday.
