Berkeley Forum canceled its planned speaker event with Tim Chau, which was scheduled for Tuesday.

Chau owns 3.14 (pi), a popular Instagram account that raises awareness of refugee situations, mental health stigmatization, social rights and politics and has more than 5 million followers. According to Da Eun Jung, a spokesperson for Berkeley Forum, Chau asked the student group to cancel the event for personal reasons.

Berkeley Forum will still be hosting Christian Picciolini, founder of the Free Radicals Project, on Thursday.
