A pair of Penn State students are learning the hard way that social media makes it hard to grow up gracefully. “A Kuwaiti exchange student has apologized for anti-American comments that sparked social media outrage and a campus police investigation,” Mitchell Gunter reported in The Daily Caller. “The comments were made by Pennsylvania State University student Hussein Altarakmah on Nov. 1 in private messages to Laura Loomer, a right-wing journalist and former Project Veritas operative.”

Loomer’s own retorts did not exactly elevate the elegance of the exchange.
