Student Promises To Smash Trump-Supporting Classmate’s Laptop If Photo Got Enough Retweets & Things Got Ugly When She Found Out
It’s one thing to not like or agree with a political candidate but threatening another human because of their political leanings is flat out stupid. Also, don’t call women you don’t know “bitches” over a bumper sticker.
Trouble was brewing over a Donald Trump sticker Wednesday on the Queens campus of St. John’s University.
A student at the private college had a cup of green tea tossed in his face after he threatened on Twitter to smash a classmate’s computer because of her allegiance to the GOP front-runner.
Clifford Durand, 18, posted a photo of an unsuspecting fellow student with a “Trump Make America Great Again” sticker on her laptop and asked his followers to share the image.
Of course, the Internet complied, and the photo was retweeting more than 16,000 times in four hours. Eventually, word got back to the female student and she rightfully lost her shit.
When 20-year-old Trump supporter Brianna Algazali was told that her picture was going viral she complained to the school’s public safety office and confronted Durand.
Several witnesses at the Fresh Meadows campus watched as the heated Trump backer threw her Matcha water on Durand.
“She raised her voice and she threw her drink on him,” a friend of Durand told the Daily News. “He looked like he was in shock. I went towards him to hold him back.”
Some students present claimed that Durand struck Algazali after he was hit with the hot beverage. He admitted as much in one of dozens of tweets he sent before his account was suspended by the social media giant.
Durand’s account was eventually suspended by Twitter but not before he tweeted out his guilt to putting his hands on her.
“SHE THREW HER STARBUCKS AT ME AFTER CUSSING ME OUT AND SHE GOT SHOVED IN THE NECK!”
So far, the police haven’t been involved in the incident but today is a new day.
