A student at Bowling Green State University accidentally confused lab equipment for a Ku Klux Klan member.

A Bowling Green student posted a short video to her Twitter account on January 22, where a piece of lab equipment draped in an opaque protective covering can be seen through a window. The student, who assumed that the lab equipment was actually a hooded member of the Ku Klux Klan on campus, was issued a quick response by Bowling Green’s president.

Mary Ellen Mazey assured the student that the lab equipment was, indeed, not a Klansman.

Twitter users had fun with the misunderstanding after President Mary Ellen Mazey’s response tweet went viral.
