A Bowling Green State University student thought she came across a massive scandal. While on campus this past Sunday, she took a video of what she believed to be a KKK member.

There's been an ACTIVE KKK group in Bowling Green, OH since 1922. @bgsu @PresidentMazey soo, how does this promote diversity &a inclusion?? pic.twitter.com/bmoA66Rt0O

I will admit that her footage definitely resembles the outfit of one of those racist dickheads, but it turns out that she was way off-base. Here’s Bowling Green President Mary Ellen Mazey’s reply, showing exactly why the Jump to Conclusions Mat would’ve been a game changer.

Thanks for sharing, @autumpatrice. We looked into this. We discovered it's a cover on a piece of lab equipment. pic.twitter.com/plkQTBr9HC

Lab equipment cover, Klansman, tomato, tomahto.

Confusing a lab equipment cover for a KKK member is peak 2017. Everybody is so damn uptight that they are always ready to make something out of nothing. Instead of trying to go viral with some bombshell story, maybe take a step back and try to find out the truth before tweeting such reckless allegations.

She doesn’t seem to be very remorseful either. What a half-assed apology.

@PresidentMazey Thnk u so much for clarifying what this was! even tho the hate group still exists in BG I'm glad this WASN'T what I thought!
