Around 500 attendees were listening to the 29-year-old activist's presentation when tensions between protestors were ignited outside the University Credit Union Center, where the event was held.

UC Davis officials claimed that a 100-person crowd gathered at the venue and briefly blocked the building's main entrance and sidewalk.

According to officials, protestors allegedly used pepper spray on other members of the crowd.

"Aside from these pepper spray reports, no major physical injuries were reported and no one requested treatment for injuries," UC Davis officials said in a statement.

Prior to Kirk's event on Tuesday, the Sacramento Bee condemned UC Davis for allowing the activist on campus — and accused Kirk of being a "fascist" who promoted anti-transgender rhetoric.

Following the scathing op-ed, the university issued a statement ahead of Kirk's visit that read, "UC Davis stands with our transgender and non-binary Aggies in opposition to this hateful and divisive messaging."
