Ajit Pai was scheduled to appear at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on January 9 to speak and answer questions in a "candid conversation" about Federal Communications Commission policymaking.
An FCC spokesman refused to comment on why Pai decided not to attend the conference. "We look forward to our next opportunity to host a technology policy discussion with him before a public audience".
There's been no explanation from the FCC for Pai's decision to cancel the appearance, which would have come just weeks after the FCC voted to eliminate net neutrality rules.
It is the second time that Pai's safety has been threatened.
Now, Pai and his office, according to Recode, apparently feel he should abandon his plans to attend CES, the global Consumer Electronics Show, due to violent threats.
Recently, Pai was forced to cut his speech on why he thinks repealing net neutrality rules is a good thing for consumers and the country because of a bomb threat at agency headquarters. News outlets keep asking whether net neutrality will be an election issue in 2018. Since the vote, net neutrality advocates have been trying to pressure lawmakers into using the Congressional Review Act to roll back the FCC's repeal. "Without strong net neutrality rules, there's nothing to stop the companies that already monopolize the internet from blocking websites or information altogether, so if the Trump Administration won't protect consumers - the State of California will".
It is understood that the Democratic FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn and Republican Commissioners Michael O'Rielly and Brendan Carr each plan to attend CES.
