The talk was to be on the subject of "What if Super Mario was Super Maria?" 8chan users had suggested that students mention the Great Giana Sisters, videotape the speech for future criticism, or pull a fire alarm. 
According to the Deseret News: 
The threatening email was sent at 10:15 p.m. Monday [Oct. 13], but wasn't discovered until recipients began checking their in-boxes the next morning. The school and police exchanged at least five emails with Sarkeesian's assistant, according to [USU spokesman Tim] Vitale ...
When it came to canceling the presentation, however, Sarkeesian cited concerns that concealed weapons would be allowed in the auditorium. She said she had requested increased security, including pat-downs or metal detectors for those coming to the presentation, but was denied based on Utah's firearms laws.
Origin of the Utah State threat Edit
The threat was widely reported to have come from Gamergate investigators, although no evidence was presented that this was the case.
