The University of Michigan has planned a screening of the movie American Sniper on campus, until a group of students started petitioning it, calling Chris Kyle a ‘mass murderer’:

A scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” at the University of Michigan was abruptly cancelled Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film perpetuates “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims.

“The movie American Sniper not only tolerates but promotes anti-Muslim … rhetoric and sympathizes with a mass killer,” according to an online letter circulated among the campus community via Google Docs that garnered the signatures.

The signers were mostly students, but also some staff, as well as the Muslim Students’ Association and the president of Students Allied for Freedom and Equality, a Palestinian solidarity group at UMich.

But instead of it coming close to being canceled, one of the Universities coaches, Jim Harbaugh, stepped in.
