University of Wyoming Police have issued a citation to Meg Lanker-Simons for a charge of interference. According to the citation “Subject admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it.”
An anonymous statement posted to the UW Crushes Facebook page last week caused a controversy. The post stated that the author would like to copulate with Lanker-Simons in an angry manner. At the time, Lanker-Simons came out publicly against the post saying that she had felt threatened by it and perceived the post as a rape-threat.
University of Wyoming spokesperson Chad Baldwin said that the citation was the result of UW Police Department’s investigation into the UW Crushes Facbook incident, but could not comment further.

Um, not sure what happened, but based on a search, Meg (who runs the popular Cognitive Dissonance Tumblr) ended up having to take down her site temporarily. But Fox Nation picked this up, so now it’s going crazy. *whew*
