Do you remember a few weeks back when we reported on Kean University receiving threatening tweets towards black students? The tweets of “I will kill every black male and female at Kean Univeristy” went viral and had students in fear of possible harm.
There were even threats of a bomb being on campus. According to the county prosecutor, Grace H. Park, the fictitious Twitter account was made by former student, Kayla-Simone McKelvey.
McKelvey, 24, of Union was charged with third-degree creating a false public alarm. They are saying she attended the student rally on Nov. 17th, but ended up leaving to make the fake Twitter account at the school library.
After sending out the post it’s reported that she quickly returned to the rally. The prosecutor said there was never any rea plan to harm the students.
Kean released as statement saying:
“We are saddened to learn that the person allegedly responsible was an active participant in the rally that took place on campus on Tuesday, November 17 and is a former student of Kean. As a diverse academic community, we wholeheartedly respect and support activism, however, no cause or issue gives anyone the right to threaten the safety of others. We hope this information will begin to bring a sense of relief and security to the campus community.”
