Singaporean vlogger Amos Yee expressed outrage over Harvard College Open Campus Initiative's abrupt cancellation of his scheduled talk that was supposed to have taken place at the Harvard University campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts earlier this week. The organisers had cancelled the event, entitled 'Jailed for Dissent,' about 24 hours before Yee was set to give his first ever public talk. Yee had been jubilant about the prospect of speaking at the prestigious Ivy League institution and expressed his disappointment over the cancellation of the talk in the latest vlog on his YouTube channel. The teenager speculated that the organisers may have cancelled the talk due to his controversial views on sexual age of consent laws - Yee advocates that such laws should be eliminated.
