This year’s big Harvard-Yale football game was disrupted by climate change activists from both universities, who stormed the field at half time.
Chanting “disclose, divest and reinvest,” they sat down around the fifty-yard line, delaying the start of the second half while police and college authorities called for them to move.
BREAKING: Over 150 Yale + Harvard students, alumni, faculty stormed the field at #HarvardYale to demand DIVESTMENT from fossil fuels & cancel holdings in Puerto Rican debt. When it comes to the status quo, #NobodyWins. @YaleEJC @FossilFreeYale @DivestHarvard pic.twitter.com/lZAcAxxmYw— Fossil Fuel Divest Harvard 🔶 (@DivestHarvard) November 23, 2019
The protestors wanted Harvard and Yale to end their investment in fossil fuels and companies holding Puerto Rican debt. While politicians like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) tweeted their support for the protestors, not everyone was happy with their actions.
I support the students, organizers, and activists demanding accountability on climate action and more at #HarvardYale. Climate change is an existential threat, and we must take bold action to fight this crisis. https://t.co/lm1V6honI4— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) November 24, 2019
Chris Colby, Harvard student and Campus Reform Correspondent, went on Fox News to complain about how annoying the protestors are for mildly inconveniencing him in order to make a point.

I have to say, it's really quite annoying." pic.twitter.com/ZYpXo6WVyS— Bobby Lewis (@revrrlewis) November 25, 2019
There were a lot of brilliant dunks on this guy.

The best of which came from his ex-girlfriend, Harvard senior Allison Chang.

If your ex-girlfriend taking your big TV appearance as validation of her decision to dump you wasn’t bad enough, Allison followed up with another tweet exposing Colby as a… picky eater.
he doesn’t eat out, but you already knew that— Allison Chang (@allisonschang) November 25, 2019
Naturally, the internet went wild.

Chang, a member of Divest Harvard, told the Daily Dot that while she was loosely aware of his politics when they got together, he hadn’t yet said “anything as egregious” as his comments to Fox News and she had been “trying to keep an open mind.”
However, once they got together she started “noticing some subliminal ways in which politics would influence things like communication and respect. Definite red flags,” which contributed to her decision to dump him.
i'm so sorry you dated this person but also so jealous that this is now your ex.— Kimberly Te (@Kooliokookie) November 25, 2019
When asked how she felt about her new fame and whether she had any regrets about exposing him like that Allison said, “I was really nervous about posting the tweet, but the response has been so uplifting and positive!” and “I have no regrets at all.”
