Bathroom Graffiti Morphs into Fear, Low Attendance
BOWLING GREEN, KY - More than half of the students at Warren East High School have missed a day of classes after a message left on a bathroom wall morphed into a perceived threat on social media.
Principal Damon Tabor told the Daily News (http://bit.ly/TxVi9O
) that about 500 students out of a total of 900 were missing on Wednesday. He reassured the 400 who came to school that they were safe.
Tabor said the issue began Tuesday evening when graffiti was found in a student bathroom that talked about an imminent uspecified act. Posts on Twitter an Facebook spread through social media, and it morphed into something bigger and worse.
Tabor said he is offering a reward for information on the student who wrote the original message on the bathroom wall.
