Daily Mail – High school graduation season is in full swing and Twitter and Facebook are jam-packed with pictures of jubilant teenagers but one girl’s tweet has landed her in a whole lot of trouble.
Mayte Lara, from Crockett High School in Austin, Texas, tweeted: ‘Valedictorian, 4.5GPA, full tuition paid for at UT, 13 cords and medals, nice legs, oh and I’m undocumented.’
Oh Mayte. If only you had left off those four words off you would have saved yourself a lot of bother.
Ms Lara’s tweet soon went viral, with more and more people getting more and more angry about an illegal immigrant from Mexico getting a free scholarship to the University of Texas.
Ahhh social media. Such a fickle mistress. It can keep you entertained for hours, connect you with all your friends and the outside world, keep you up to date instantly on breaking news, give you a space to build your #brand and express yourself. Then you can post the wrong thing, wake up in the morning and have the entire planet shitting down your throat. Mayte Lara finding that out the hard way by bragging about her GPA and nice legs then becoming the #1 trending topic in the world from all the people sending her Trump memes for being illegal.
Annnnd Twitter account deleted. Social media life over. Still got that full ride and those legs though so she’ll be ok. Unless Trump wins of course, then she may want to start looking into transferring credits.
