On Friday night, Republican students at the University of California, Davis, had hoped to host an event featuring Twitter-suspended trolls Milo Yiannopoulos and Martin Shkreli. That did not happen. According to the school, a massive protest "blocked access to the venue, and it was determined that it was no longer feasible to continue with the event safely."

Yiannopoulos tried to spin the cancelation as the result of left-wing "violence," falsely claiming that windows had been smashed, barricades thrown, and hammers brandished. Campus police reported no such eruption of mass violence, saying only that they had broken up a couple of fights between protesters and supporters and made "one arrest for obstructing an officer and battery of a peace officer." And the real story, as it turns out, was far better: Someone walloped Shkreli right in the face with a handful of dog poop.

As you might expect when a disgraced, indicted, drug-price-hiking young pharma exec whose main hobby is being gross to women on the internet gets dog poop on his insufferable mug, the mood on Twitter was celebratory.

We've yet to learn who threw the dog poop, which dog pooped it, and whether any got in Shkreli's eyes. But he and Yiannopoulos are supposedly mounting a campus march at 1pm PST on Saturday, and there's a good chance someone will be looking to serve him a second helping. Don't you just love freedom of speech?
