A white former student at the University of Hartford has been arrested and charged with a hate crime after she admitted to constantly harassing her black roommate. Brianna Rae Brochu admitted she rubbed used tampons on her roommate’s backpack. She also wrote on social media, “After 1 and a half month of spitting in her coconut oil, putting moldy clam dip in her lotions … putting her toothbrush places where the sun doesn’t shine, and so much more I can finally say goodbye Jamaican Barbie.” Brochu now faces charges of hate crimes.
