Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has decided against speaking at the University of California, Berkeley.

The New York Times reports that "Coulter said Wednesday that she is canceling her planned speech at the [university] because she had lost the backing of conservative groups that had initially sponsored her appearance."

This appears to be the latest update in a tumultuous situation which started, in part, when Berkeley College Republicans asked her to be a guest on campus, notes the Washington Post.
Citing security issues, the university canceled her Thursday visit but, in response to public outcry, rescheduled it for another day and at a more secure location. The Post notes on Wednesday that "Coulter rejected that offer and said she still plans to come to Berkeley on Thursday despite the university's warnings against it."
She also told the Times, "It's a sad day for free speech."
