This morning, Haily Duvall, a 19-year-old University of Kentucky student, was arrested for spreading and reporting a fake threat against White Hall, a prominent classroom building on campus. Before the police discovered she made the false threats via SnapChat, Duvall did several interviews with local media, even telling the Kentucky Kernel that she had a test in that building today but felt UK should cancel classes and fully investigate the matter.
“It’s a safe or sorry thing. Would you rather ignore it, and then somebody get hurt? I definitely take it seriously. I’ve even encouraged fellow students, ‘Hey if you don’t feel safe, don’t go.'”
“Your life is worth more than 10 participation points,” she continued. “Or notes you can get from a fellow student. This should not be taken like a grain of salt; there should be some concern in this situation.”
Not the smartest criminal, Duvall didn’t stop there, even going on camera with WKYT.
“Definitely at first, I was like, yeah, no, this is one mad kid who probably failed an exam, but the more they came, once I was added on SnapChat by the person, I realized it was a little more severe than initially led on,” she said.
One of the threats Duvall allegedly created and spread on SnapChat said “White Hall is about to be white ashes along with every a**hole student in it.” Another said “Thirsty thursdays are about become ticking time bomb thursdays.”
Maybe you should have just taken the F on that test, Haily.
