'Bill Clinton Rapes' covered up before OU speech

  • A message reading "Bill Clinton Rapes" appeared on Ohio University's free speech wall a few hours before the former president's speech on the campus, but was painted over shortly before the event began.

Early Tuesday morning, just before Bill Clinton was scheduled to speak at Ohio University, the university’s free speech wall was painted with the message “Bill Clinton rapes”.

According to The Naked Truth News, the wall was painted over with the letters “ USA” over a red, white, and blue background roughly five hours later, at 8:30 a.m. Clinton was scheduled to begin his speech at 11:00 a.m., and doors for the event were scheduled to open at 10:00 a.m.

The Naked Truth provided Campus Reform with a video of wall before it was covered up with the patriotic paint.

In April, as reported by Campus Reform, the College Republicans at OU were criticized for writing a message on the wall mocking safe spaces, with some students even calling for a police investigation.

It is not currently clear who covered up the “Bill Clinton Rapes” message, and spokespersons for OU did not respond to a request for comment in time for publication.
