The Internet has been in outrage after a photo went viral showcasing a memorial rock that was vandalized by Trump supporters.
22-year-old Jeffrey Allan Mathews, who was a Law student and member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity at James Madison University, sadly passed away earlier this week. As a tribute, his frat brothers spent about eight hours creating a memorial on a rock to have for his candlelight vigil.
After all their hard efforts, someone on campus decided to vandalize the work hours later by showing their support for presidential candidate Donald Trump. The rock was painted over and said “Trump 2016” also displaying the hashtag “#TrumpTrain.” SMH!
Frat members took to social media to share their disgust with the situation
Good job jmu. All we wanted was to have a mural for my neo, who more importantly was my friend, who is no longer here. Wasn't even 12 hours before someone else decided that a trump support message was more important. Sorry to those who worked so hard to paint the rock. I don't even want to know who did this because… Yeah.
So far the University has not released any statements about the incident.
RIP to the young man Jeffrey Allan Mathews.
