Sacramento State president Robert S. Nelsen confirmed the school’s “Bites on the Bridge” dinner was bombarded by the flyers, in a statement that rebuked the leaflets’ messaging.

“Sacramento State condemns in the strongest terms the dissemination of hate speech and propaganda Friday evening at our annual fundraising dinner on the Guy West Bridge,” Nelson said via a statement on Facebook.
