Commencement ceremonies disrupted across nation as students walk out on Jerry Seinfeld’s speech

Dozens of students walked out on Jerry Seinfeld at Duke University as he was about to deliver a commencement speech, protesting Israel’s war in Gaza. Seinfeld, a supporter of Israel, largely avoided the issue during his speech, mentioning his Jewish heritage instead. Similar pro-Palestinian protests occurred at other universities, with students leaving ceremonies in support. Some protests turned into clashes with police, resulting in arrests. The demonstrations reflect growing tensions around support for Palestine on US campuses, with students demanding divestment and support for those affected by conflicts in Gaza and Ukraine.
