HATTIESBURG, Miss– Yik-Yak is a tool for trouble again, this time as a threat against the Southern Miss Hattiesburg campus.
Southern Miss University Police are responding to a threat made on Yik-Yak earlier Monday about Joseph Greene Hall. The message on Yik-Yak read, “The red will flow tomorrow at JGH. I recommend missing class.”
University Police Chief Bob Hopkins said at a press conference Monday that it even if this is an empty threat, they are treating it seriously. Classes are scheduled to resume, but there will be added security in and around Joseph Green Hall.
WDAM reports that Chief Hopkins says they are working with Yik-Yak and the person responsible for this threat could be charged with making a terrorist threat.
