Freshman Arrested After Harassing Jamaican Roommate
College roommates can be notoriously hard to handle in the best cases, especially for those away from home for the first time. But a viral video posted Monday by a University of Hartford student that alleges her roommate bragged about covertly harassing her for weeks has drawn national outrage and birthed the hashtag #justiceforjazzy.
Jazzy Rowe, who is black and a freshman at the University of Hartford, posted a video Monday evening that detailed the shocking allegations against her roommate.
In the video, she describes how she was finishing her move out of the apartment into another room when her roommate, later identified as freshman Brianna Brochu, who is white, paused her movie and asked if she was moving out, Rowe said in the video.
