Protest Disrupts 'American Sniper' at Eastern Michigan

April 13, 2015

The University of Michigan last week called off a screening of the film American Sniper after the Muslim Student Association objected to the movie, but the university reversed itself and the film was shown without incident. At Eastern Michigan University, however, four protesters were detained briefly after they disrupted a Friday night screening of the film, MLive reported. About 40 students in total participated in the protest, holding signs. After a delay, the film was shown, but a second showing that night was called off because of the delays in the first screening.
