University of Michigan walks back a decision to cancel a screening of the movie, “American Sniper.” In a statement released late Wednesday, the university president called the decision a mistake.
As reported by FOX NEWS: University Vice President for Student Life E. Royster Harper called the decision to cancel the Friday night showing a “mistake” in a statement.
“The initial decision to cancel the movie was not consistent with the high value the University of Michigan places on freedom of expression and our respect for the right of students to make their own choices in such matters,” Harper said. “The movie will be shown at the originally scheduled time and location.”
Harper added that the university will also screen the family-friendly film “Paddington” as an alternative.
The university’s football coach also weighed in on the issue. Breitbart reports:
“The University of Michigan cancelled, and then rescheduled, a campus showing of American Sniper. The school’s new football coach announced that his players will watch the movie.”
