Now that #WeKnowWhatYouDid at Spelman. I will tell you this. My daughter is a freshman at @SpelmanCollege If you do it to my daughter or any other student and I know about it, you will have JAIL to pay. I am a mother, an alumna, and a rape survivor. I never reported. #NotToday

Y’all are more concerned with protecting the name of a rapist than protecting a woman from being raped. #WeKnowWhatYouDid
