An Arizona man was arrested on Friday in connection with posting death threats to harm Black Students and attendees at Harvard.

Nicholas Zuckerman, 24, was accused of writing sinister threats on Harvard’s University’s Instagram page in May 2017 and has been indicted on two charges of transmitting in interstate and foreign commerce a threat to injure the person of another, Attorney Andrew Lelling told Boston Globe.

The Ivy League college was planning it’s first commencement ceremony which recognized and honored Black graduates, but was over shadowed once Zuckerman allegedly insinuated on the college’s official social media page that gun violence and bombing would take place at the event.

“If the Blacks only ceremony happens, then I encourage violence and death at it. I’m thinking two automatics with extendo clips. Just so no nigger gets away,” the suspect wrote.

He also added “#bombharvard and end their pro-black agenda” and used the hashtag “#bombharvard” a count of 11 times within four minutes.

A worried citizen reported the string of disturbing posts to Harvard University police who then contacted federal authorities said the US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts. It’s unclear why it took a year after the reports were made for Zuckerman to be arrested.

Zuckerman could possibly face five years in prison and a fine of $250k according to U.S. law.
