The superintendent of a Vermont school district said in a statement on Tuesday that the FBI is assisting in the investigation into an anti-LGBTQ hate speech incident that took place on the district’s website.
The website of the Orange Southwest Supervisory District was attacked on October 1 and is still unavailable due to “hate rhetoric, symbols, and photos targeting transgender individuals,” according to the VT Digger. The attack is being investigated by the FBI, the superintendent Layne Millington said in a statement.
According to Millington, “The creators of the proprietary software [are working] with the FBI [to conduct] a forensic analysis,”
After Randolph Union High School permitted a 14-year-old male volleyball player to change in the women’s locker room, an online attack occurred. The school barred the volleyball team from using the facility after team members complained that the male who shared their locker room made them feel uneasy.
“It’s a huge thing … everyone’s asking, ‘Why aren’t you allowed in the locker room?” According to Blake Allen, a member of the high school girls volleyball team, WCAX-TV.
