This Texas High Schooler Caused a Frenzy on Twitter After Announcing She Was an Illegal Immigrant

Why she had to reveal that information to the world is beyond me. Doesn’t she realize what a horrible place the Internet can be? Unfortunately for her, the tweet quickly went viral and the Crockett High School grad from Austin, Texas is getting a lot of attention. Most of the commenters were pretty pissed off and did not take the jubilant message well.

Others didn’t respond as harshly.
