The Connecticut NAACP is demanding that a felony hate crime charge be filed against a white former University of Hartford freshman who allegedly contaminated her black roommate’s living space.
Brianna Brochu was expelled from the university at the beginning of the month after news about the atrocious allegations went viral. Brochu is facing charges of third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree breach of peace after police say she boasted about rubbing used tampons on Chennel “Jazzy” Rowe’s backpack and contaminating Rowe’s eating utensils, toothbrush and other beauty products.
“Finally did it yo girl got rid of her roommate!! After 1 1/2 month of spitting in her coconut oil, putting moldy 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,” Brochu wrote in the caption for photos posted on Instagram.
Rowe detailed in a lengthy Facebook Live video how she learned about her roommate’s nasty attacks and the entire process she had to go through with the school, which, she said, attempted to silence her.
Rowe also described how she kept getting sick, something that is incredibly alarming given that her living quarters had apparently been badly contaminated because of her nasty-ass roommate from hell.
Police said last week that they were seeking a hate crime charge, and the Connecticut NAACP is trying to ensure that that sticks, according to the Associated Press. Some 100 people attended a rally Wednesday outside the West Hartford, Conn., Police Department, demanding that a felony hate crime charge be immediately filed.
Police say that their investigation into the incident is complete. However, Hartford County State’s Attorney Gail Hardy said that investigators are still waiting to talk to Rowe before deciding how to move forward.
