During Sunday’s graduation ceremony at Duke University, commencement speaker Jerry Seinfeld sparked controversy as a group of students staged a walkout in response to his remarks.

A few dozen students left the event, some carrying Palestinian flags and chanting “Free Palestine.” Seinfeld is known for his public support of Israel.

The protest quickly shifted to supportive chants of “Jerry, Jerry” from the remaining audience. Seinfeld continued delivering his speech making jokes about having an honorary doctorate from the university.
