A white student allegedly bragged about rubbing used tampons on her black roommate's bag on Instagram.
Brianna Brochu, a first year student at the University of Hartford in Connecticut, US, also bragged how "she finally got rid of her roommate," who she called "Jamaican Barbie."
The victim, Chennel ‘Jazzy’ Rowe, revealed the bizarre incident in a Facebook video that has gone viral.
In her Instagram post, Brochu wrote: "After 1 1/12 months of spitting in her coconut oil, putting mouldy clam dip in her lotions, rubbing used tampons on her backpack...
"...putting her toothbrush places where the sun doesn’t shine and so much more I can finally say goodbye Jamaican Barbie."
Rowe reported the incident to the university's authorities. Slow progress in addressing it prompted her to record her Facebook video.
The university's president Greg Woodward issued a statement condemning Brochu's "reprehensible" behavior. Police have also reportedly arrested her.
