John Cleese cancels appearance at Cambridge university due to “woke rules”.

British actor John Cleese is taking no chances with what he considers the “woke” mob, even if it means canceling an upcoming appearance at his own alma mater.

Cleese on Tuesday took to the social media platform Twitter to announce he was pulling out of appearing at the leading UK institution after a fellow attendee was barred by “woke” staff and students.

“I was looking forward to talking to students at the Cambridge Union this Friday, but I hear that someone there has been blacklisted for doing an impersonation of Hitler,” Cleese told his 5.6 million Twitter followers. “I regret that I did the same on a Monty Python show, so I am blacklisting myself before someone else does.”
