FBI Joins Investigation into Who Threatened ‘Deadliest School Shooting’ if Feminist Spoke

The FBI joined an investigation into who sent an email threatening “the deadliest school shooting in American history” if Utah State University hosted a speech by feminist writer Anita Sarkeesian, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Sarkeesian, a critic of how women are portrayed in video games, said she canceled the speech because of the threat and a state law that allows people to carry concealed permits at events in public venues.

The email purportedly came from an anonymous USU student, who claimed to “have at my disposal a semi-automatic rifle, multiple pistols, and a collection of pipe bombs” that he would use to ensure Sarkeesian would “die screaming like the craven little whore that she is.”

Campus police said they were prepared to protect Sarkeesian.

“She was worried about Utah law preventing police from keeping people with legal, conceal-carry permits from entering the event,” USU spokesman Tim Vitale said. “But our police were prepared and had in place extra security measures. It was her decision to cancel.”
