CLEMSON, S.C. (WYFF) - Conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren is set to speak at Clemson University on Thursday.

Turning Point USA said the event, which will also feature Brandon Tatum, will be held at 7 p.m. at Littlejohn Coliseum.

The event was originally planned for the Madren Conference Center on Clemson’s campus but was moved to the bigger venue.

The event is officially called “Back the Blue with Tomi Lahren and Brandon Tatum.”

A petition on Change.org signed by nearly 4,000 people as of Tuesday says, “As students of Clemson University, we do not condone the appearance of Tomi Lahren on our campus AND demand that Clemson University bans her from our university.”

A protest is also planned outside the stadium.
