“We looked into this. We discovered it’s a cover on a piece of lab equipment.”   

“There’s been an ACTIVE KKK group in Bowling Green, OH since 1922,” the student tweeted at BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey. “@bgsu @PresidentMazey soo, how does this promote diversity &a [sic] inclusion??”

Soon after, Mazey responded to the student’s tweet with a picture revealing that the “Klan hood” in the student’s video was actually lab equipment with a plastic cover.

“Thanks for sharing @autumpatrice,” Mazey wrote. “We looked into this. We discovered it’s a cover on a piece of lab equipment.”

The student expressed relief that she was mistaken, but maintained her insistence that the campus is plagued by hate groups.

“Thnk u so much for clarifying what this was!” the student said “even tho the hate group still exists in BG I’m glad this WASN’T what I thought!”
