TEMPE, Ariz. -

He's trying to get attention and send a message -- and he's doing both, but maybe not in the best way.

A self-proclaimed preacher held up a sign on the University of Arizona campus that read "You Deserve Rape" and now that same preacher is at it again, this time at Arizona State University.

He held up a sign that read the same thing and as you can imagine, he didn't get a very warm welcome.

His name is Dean Saxton and he calls himself Brother Dean. 

He stirred up controversy when he staged a similar event at U of A.  This past Friday, he came to ASU.

"Most of you women out here by the way that you are dressed, I can tell that your father hates you."

In the video, you can see ASU students talking back to the self-proclaimed preacher.  At one point, someone in a banana suit mocks him. 

But some students got angry.  One of the people associated with the preacher and two students appeared to be close to a fight.

"I was really offended by that video," said Kat Hofland.

Hofland is the president of ASU's sexual violence prevention group I Always Get Consent.  She says the preacher's sign sends a terrible message to rape victims.

"No matter what your religion, no matter what your political view is, rape shouldn't have anything to do with that.  Rape is evil, rape is wrong.  There is no person who deserves to be raped," she said.  "This is a relatively rare event. I have never seen it on our campus before."

ASU statement to FOX 10:

"Last Friday an individual characterizing himself as "brother Dean" was present on one of the campus malls expressing his personal religious views.  A handful of ASU students expressed their personal disagreement with the statements that were being made.  A college campus is a marketplace of ideas. ASU is strongly committed to freedom of speech.  Respect for that right sometimes results in speech that others fine offensive and abhorrent.

The university also stands against any assault upon the dignity and value of any individual through harassment that substantially interferes with his or her educational opportunities, peaceful enjoyment of residence, physical security, or terms or conditions of employment. The Office of Equity and Inclusion is the office charged with evaluating claims of discrimination on campus. For matters that may violate criminal law, ASU Police provides information and assistance. Students and employees are encouraged to contact these offices as appropriate."
