College Student Posts Picture of Klan Rally on Campus, Turns Out to Be Lab Equipment

bowling greenA Bowling Green State University student raised the alarm Monday over the supposed appearance of a Ku Klux Klan rally on campus, which needless to say, turned out not to be a Klan rally.

The student in question tweeted the following, along with video of the “Klansman”:

Bowling Green actually looked into the incident, and its president soon tweeted that the Klan rally was actually just covered-up lab equipment.

The amusing incident spread like wildfire and mockery ensued, first from students and then from a wider audience.

Meanwhile, the student still insists that there’s a Klan chapter somewhere on campus.
